Open for Business is a film and photography exhibition at the Science Museum exploring British Industry through the eyes of nine of the Magnum photographers. It is open until the 2nd November and explores all aspects of industry from handmade crafts to the intelligent high tech world of modern high tech factories. The exhibition reveals the gritty reality facing British industry, and tells the stories of the individuals who work to create the things we take for granted.
The exhibition taps into a trend we have been noticing more and more. We are becoming increasingly in tune with our rich industrial history in Britain and across the Western World. Some brands are tuning into this change, like Doc Martins which created a short film called ‘The Art of Industrial Manufacture’ documenting their Cobs Lane Factory and the real people involved in making the boots.
The exhibition is on until the 2nd November at the Science Museum London
