Paul Reas – “Day Dreaming About The Good Times?”

Man With Movie Camera 001

22 March – 10 May 2014

Paul Reas is one of the most significant photographers to emerge from the new wave of British colour documentary of the mid-1980s. Spanning thirty years from Thatcherite Britain to today’s recession, and encompassing themes of class, consumption, work and leisure, this is Reas’ first major retrospective.

Paul Reas is part of the pioneering generation of photographers who revealed and critiqued British class and culture in the 1980s and 90s. Strongly influenced by his working class upbringing in Bradford, Reas uses humour and sharp observation to comment on a new corporate and commercial world epitomised by heritage industry sites, retail parks, and supermarkets.

A touring exhibition by Impressions Gallery in partnership with Ffotogallery, curated by Anne McNeill.
