Event: Pierdom – Photographs of Britain’s Piers by Simon Roberts

Brighton Museum & Art Gallery 3 October 2015 - 21 February 2016

Can anything sum up British national identity more powerfully than the pleasure pier? For the past two centuries the piers of Britain have traced our relationship with the seaside and our economic and social history. Forty photographs from Pierdom, Simon Roberts’ three-year quest to document all of Britain’s remaining pleasure piers, are exhibited together for the first time at Brighton Museum and Art Gallery until 21 Februray 2016.
