Exhibition : Norwich Works: The Industrial Photography of Walter and Rita Nurnberg

October 21, 2023 - April 14, 2024

Between 1948 and 1961, German-born husband and wife Walter and Rita Nurnberg photographed the factories of Norwich and their workers. Meticulously choreographed images of the factories are infused with the high modernism of the Bauhaus, whilst striking portraits of workers lean into the glamour and beauty of cinema’s golden age. It includes over 130 original photographic prints representing three key Norwich industries with the photos being displayed alongside objects from our own collections relating to the city’s industrial past and newly digitised archive film.
