John Hansard Gallery, part of the University of Southampton, is one of the UK’s leading contemporary art galleries. We are proud to play a dynamic role in the cultural life of Southampton and the region. As a city, Southampton itself doesn’t necessarily have the sandy beaches, deckchairs and sticks of rock usually associated with seaside places, but it does have a long and varied maritime history. It is a coastal destination that has evolved from, and is intrinsically connected to the sea through trade, shipping, travel and migration. It is a city that has been the point of departure or return for countless journeys and adventures.
Seaside Photographed is a major exhibition that examines the relationship between photographers, photography and the British seaside from the 1850s to the present. Including early photographic depictions of the sea, picture postcards revealing the glee and grime of coastal resorts, reportage, and intimate shots of holiday and relaxation, the exhibition presents the seaside in a multitude of different visions, celebrating our special relationship with our coast.
