West Coast Photo
26th October 2019 – 15th January 2020
An exhibition of photography and lens based media inspired by the identity and landscape of the West Coast of Cumbria.
Signal Film + Media is proud to present West Coast Photo, an exhibition showcasing life on the Cumbrian west coast from the early twentieth century to now. The exhibition includes work from internationally-renowned contemporary photographers Martin Parr, Daniel Meadows, Joanne Coates and Felicity Hammond as well as local artists and photographers Brian Moxham, Phil Green and Zoe Forster. Visitors will also have the rare opportunity to discover images and artefacts from two remarkable local archives, many items of which have never been exhibited before: the astonishing Sankey Family Photographic Collection of images and postcards documenting Barrow and Cumbria between the years of 1890 and 1960 and Ivor Nicholas' stunning work, a press photographer based in Whitehaven who has documented the West Coast from 1950 to today.
