Industry Throughout
The World

The V&A are about to host a major exhibition in Dubai of Maurice Broomfield’s work. He has also had major exhibitions held at the Science Museum in London, the V&A, Sir Paul Smith’s Floral Street Gallery, Malta, New York, Los Angeles, and the Isle of Wight.

Maurice Broomfield left school at 15 to work in a factory and spent his evenings as a student in the Derby College of Art. Inspired by the drama of industry, he endeavoured to convey this atmosphere with photographs and sketches, bringing an insight to those who would never experience such things.

In relation to his work, Maurice Broomfield said: “I enjoy photographing people at work, and the many experiences whilst doing this have enriched my life. To be living on this planet, is to me, the greatest gift possible.”

  • Industry has never looked so dramatic as in Maurice Broomfield’s black and white portraits, which are both epic and sexy.
