Texts by Alain de Botton
Photographs by Richard Baker
THE PLEASURES AND SORROWS OF WORK
14 APRIL – 05 SEPTEMBER
This special exhibition showcases 16 stunning photographs by Richard Baker for Alain de Botton’s recent book The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work.
An exploration of the joys and perils of the modern workplace, the book beautifully evokes what people get up to all day – and night – to make the frenzied contemporary world function.
The exhibition juxtaposes texts from the book with a selection of Richard Baker’s specially-commissioned images. Ranging from rocket science to biscuit manufacture, it illuminates art, nature and industry through the hidden worlds of modern work.
