IAN BEESLEY: WORK
Ian Beesley: Work is now on in Gallery 2. Open Mon – Fri 10-5:30; Sat & Sun 10-6pm, admission free.
This exhibition presents work from the last 4 decades by Beesley, one of Europe's finest social documentary photographers. Large-scale prints include images taken at Salts Mill in the 80s as it slowly shut down, and some from 2017 when he returned to see the building thriving once more. An extraordinary Wall of Workers shows portraits of men and women employed in trades which no longer exist. The gallery also houses The Big Big Camera – a century-old industrial relic revived by Beesley - and the work he has created with it. Throughout the show are poems written by Ian McMillan, Beesley’s friend and frequent collaborator.
Attention all early birds! Salts Diner is now open for breakfast at 9am on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays. The Diner will continue to serve breakfast from 9:30 Mondays-Fridays. Come and enjoy homemade granola, smoked salmon & scrambled eggs or the whole works surrounded by David Hockney’s beautiful art.
To access Salts Diner before 10am, please use the external lift. If you're coming from the carpark, walk through the tunnel to the right of the glass entrance, turn left at the end and take the lift to the second floor. Coming down the cobbled yard, proceed through the mill gates and you’ll find the lift at the end on the right hand side, under a roof.
