Details

An exhibition featuring large-scale prints and negatives taken by acclaimed photographer Ian Beesley as part of his Artist in Residency at Gallery Oldham.

All of the photographs were taken on a huge industrial process camera which was made by Hunter Penrose in the 19th century.

Including new photographs taken at the Museum as well as a selection of poems by Barnsley Bard Ian McMillan, the Big Big Camera will make you think again about the process of photography.
