Readers who saw our exhibition Rambles... from the Darkroom will know what to expect of a Reece Winstone exhibition. At the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol we showed 150 photographs of Reece’s own photo-journalism from 1930 to the 1960s, culled from his coverage of life in Bristol and Somerset and contrasting the two. The photography is as topical and engaging as ever.
It was a wide-ranging selection, and Volume 44 is its full catalogue with articles by various contributors.
Readers may purchase Bristol & Somerset: Vanishing Lives from us direct at £14.95 post-paid. Cheques payable to Reece Winstone Archive please.
The playwright, Alan Bennett, says:
‘It's full of gems.... they are so often of ordinary lives & that makes them so much more vivid.‘
From the visitor’s book:
‘So important for Bristol & district they deserve a permanent display of their own’; ‘This display shows what culturally has been lost in the dubious race for progress.’
