We are pleased to announce we will be showing a selection of images by photographer Ken Harrison, during our group exhibition, Windows into Industrial Worlds, 6 April to 30 June 2019, at Himley Hall and Park.

Ken Harrison is a Smethwick based photographer working in digital and traditional film imaging. Ken photographs landscape, architecture and also live music, and has widely exhibited images taken from his personal project ‘A Picture of Smethwick’. The project  culminated in an exhibition and self-published book of 40 images featuring various nationally listed buildings within Smethwick, the town’s heritage, canal network, local industries and public buildings. The project was inspired in part by the book by local amateur photographer, ‘Joe Russell’s Smethwick’, as well as Ken’s construction background and interest in heritage and building conservation.
