Exhibition: Open for Business at M Shed

In 2013, Jonas Bendiksen, Stuart Franklin, Bruce Gilden, David Hurn, Peter Marlow, Martin Parr, Mark Power, Chris Steele-Perkins and Alessandra Sanguinetti photographed over 100 workplaces across the UK, from one-man businesses to FTSE 100 companies.

Through eye-opening photography and film footage, Open for Business celebrates the resilience of British industry and reveals the daily struggle at a human level as businesses attempt to cut costs, streamline processes and level up to international competition. The project captures British manufacturing’s effect on regional culture and community life, and celebrates the work, activities and lives of its employees.

Bristol based photographer Martin Parr has captured the innovative industries in the city from Cameron Balloons’ 40 year history as the largest manufacture of hot air balloons in the world, to the cutting edge engineering at BAE Systems and the more painstaking meticulous work of Aardman Animations.
