Magnum Photos and Multistory have created a tumblr blog for its UK wide project 'Open For Business' providing behind-the-scenes access to the photographer shoots and sneak peeks at the project in progress.
Open for Business will be the largely untold story of British manufacturing and industry through the lens of the world’s greatest photographers. 9 world-renowned Magnum photographers will document and record manufacturing industries in 9 British cities. Working with 9 cultural partners the finished project will be a major touring exhibition during 2014/15. This project will give people across the UK new access to great art and encourage them to engage with their local area.
Open for Business will focus on the historic industrial areas in the UK as well as new and innovative industries as we look to the future, seeking out success stories, large and small, that reflect Britain’s changing industrial and cultural heritage. The project will tell the story of British manufacturing, capturing the current landscape and its effect on people, community and culture through the unique international perspective of the Magnum photographers.
