Ilford Limited: Analogue Stories

Mon-Fri: 10-8pm; Sat: 10-5pm

Ilford Limited: Analogue Stories is the National Portrait Gallery's latest exhibition in partnership with Redbridge Museum. The exhibition showcases new portraits by photographer Eddie Otchere alongside photography and zines produced by local young people exploring the working life at the Ilford Limited photographic factory.

Delving into the Ilford Limited archive held at Redbridge Heritage Centre, we explore stories of past workers alongside memories from former workers of their time at Ilford Limited during the 1960s and 1970s before the company moved out of Ilford in 1976.

At the heart of Ilford Limited is analogue photography and this display shows the beauty of Ilford film as a tool to experiment, make portraits and capture people’s stories.
