Acclaimed British photographer Roger Mayne (1929 鈥 2014) was famous for his evocative documentary images of young people growing-up in Britain in the mid-1950s and 鈥60s.聽

This exhibition, of around 60 almost exclusively vintage photographs, includes many of his iconic street images of children and teenagers, alongside an almost entirely unknown selection of intimate and moving later images of his own family at home in Dorset, as well as those taken on his honeymoon in Spain in 1962.

Self-taught and influential in the acceptance of photography as an art form, Mayne was passionate about photographing human life as he found it. This is the first exhibition of his work since 2017.

Please note this exhibition contains photographs of childbirth.
