Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Exhibition: Ilford Limited: Analogue Stories / until 12 March 2023

This exhibition between the National Portrait Gallery and Redbridge Museum showcases new portraits by photographer Eddie Otchere alongside photography and zines produced by local young people exploring the working life at the Ilford Limited photographic factory.

Delving into the Ilford Limited archive held at Redbridge Heritage Centre, it explores stories of past workers alongside memories from former workers of their time at Ilford Limited during the 1960s and 1970s before the company moved out of Ilford in 1976. These stories reveal the reality of starting a career straight out of school, working in pitch black laboratories, and the experiences of women who took leading roles in brand new professions such as Computer Science and Radiography.

At the heart of Ilford Limited is analogue photography and this display shows the beauty of Ilford film as a tool to experiment, make portraits and capture people’s stories.
