The video offers an exclusive look behind-the-scenes at John Myers' exhibition at the Gallery of Photography, as well as featuring the artist himself discussing some of what motivated the work. Using a large format camera, Myers was pioneering in his treatment of the everyday as a photographic subject, capturing a particular moment of social transition simply on the basis of his attention to the people and places that surrounded him. The Gallery of Photography is pleased to present this unique opportunity to view a groundbreaking body of work. This exhibition was made possible by the generous collaboration of the Ikon Gallery and the Library of Birmingham.
