Exhibition of Stoke Sentinel photographs set to open in June

An exhibition of more than 80 years of pictures by photographers at The Sentinel, Stoke, is is to be opened next month.

The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery in Stoke-on-Trent will display the photographs for three months, beginning on 27 June.

The exhibition, entitled ‘Dear Happy Ghosts’, will be opened by former Guardian Picture Editor Eamonn McCabe. It will feature 120 large photographs and 100 smaller images taken by Sentinel photojournalists over eight decades.

Sentinel Picture Editor Martin Elliott, selected the images along with long-serving photographer Steve Bould.

Elliott said: “This is an exciting opportunity for the public to view some of the archetypical images which have helped convey The Sentinel’s coverage of events which have shaped the history of the Potteries over the last 80 or so years.

“It is a socio-documentary covering not only international events such as the affects of war, but a record of the everyday lives of the men and women of the area in the true tradition of regional photojournalism.”
