Self-taught and influential in the advocacy of photography as an art form, Mayne was passionate about representing human life as he found it – most famously, in his street images of low-income communities in West London. Capturing children at play and the emerging phenomenon of the ‘swaggering teenager’, Mayne discovered in the young a defining energy that perfectly embodied both the scars and the vitality of post-war Britain.The exhibition of more than sixty photographs brings together a selection of Mayne’s iconic London scenes with later, almost entirely unknown intimate portraitsof his own family in rural Dorset.

Roadside South Cover

Pub Date: 28 Sep 2022
Description:
Much of the American South, especially its small towns and rural areas, is connected not by interstate highways but through a web-like network of country roads, many of which appear only on the most detailed of maps. These are the backroads that most Southerners drive on every day. Unlike the interstates, whose roadsides have been largely scrubbed clean of regional character, these smaller roads travel through unplanned, vernacular landscapes that tell much about local life, both past and present, and suggest that we make connections between the two.
