Huxley-Parlour gallery are pleased to announce an exhibition of vintage photographs from Paul Graham’s 1983 series A1 – The Great North Road. A transformative series in the history of photography, A1 spanned the full length of England and into Edinburgh. Graham travelled repeatedly along the ‘Great North Road’ with a large format camera, to record the people, buildings, and landscape of early 1980’s Britain.

The exhibition will run in collaboration with Anthony Reynolds Gallery and coincides with the launch of the latest MACK edition of the book.
