Documenting British Manufacturing

December 9, 2012

It’s no surprise that Britain, once the ‘workshop of the world‘, has a proud heritage of satisfying the needs of consumers. Whether bespoke or mass produced, there’s still something wonderful about seeing things being made in a digital world of ones and zeros.

Capturing this seemingly hidden world is too tempting a prospect for most film-makers including us and so we are delighted that sister-mag, a great new digital magazine is celebrating ‘craftsmanship’ in their latest edition (find us on p223-227).  The Berlin based magazine explore what attracts us to document people making things, in our case, at Barbour South Shields, UK.

If you are interested in British Manufacturing, one upcoming project well worth following is by 10 Magnum photographers for the wonderful Multistory team. The largely untold story of British manufacturing+industry through the lens of the world’s greatest photographers.  I can’t wait to see the results.
