Photo exhibition features Post newsroom in 1970s

Images showing journalists from a regional daily during the 1970s will appear as part of a photography exhibition which documents the working lives of people.

Three photos of the Bristol Evening Post in September 1976 are featured in the HOME exhibition, which is a collection of images taken by Robert Golden in the 1970s.

The images of the PostĀ reveal how newsrooms have changed over the last four decades, with the advent of new technology to produce papers.

The HOME exhibition, which features 70 black and white photos by Robert, also has images of the working lives of people in industries including farming, mining and transport, along with documentary films, texts, traditional music and a series of workshops.

US-born Robert moved to Britain in 1970 and worked as a photographer for papers including The Times and the Daily Telegraph, while he is also an award-winning maker of commercials, feature films and documentaries.

The exhibition, which is free to enter, is running at Bridport Arts Centre in Dorset until 27 August.
