Beyond the View: Reframing the Sunbeam Photographic Collection

11th July - 22nd August

The exhibition provides rare public access to the vast Sunbeam Photographic Collection, and related images by the internationally recognised photographers Tony Ray Jones and John Hinde, and seeks to reconsider, reimagine and reveal both the quality and cultural significance of these exquisite images. The photographs document life in the South East of England from 1917 - 1976 and capture social history through political, civic and ceremonial events.
