Maurice Broomfield is the man behind some fantastic photographs of British industry. Not the most glamorous subject on paper, but the images speak for themselves, both in composition and resonence. Taken at a time of re-generation for British industry from the 1950s, Maurice captures a sense of glamour and vigor that is resolutely positive. I can think of no better criteria for a stunning extended slideshow.
A small selection of his sprawling portfolio can be seen here, and just when you start to think it’s really good, remind yourself he took these over 50 years ago. Staggering stuff.
