Broomfield photos capture lost world

Maurice Broomfield was the foremost industrial photographer of the 1950s. His photos of British factories have a glamour and drama more usually associated with film and are seen as works of art recording a now vanished era.

This year sees two exhibitions of his work in Derby and at the Pallant House gallery of modern art, Chichester.

Reporter Sanchia Berg spoke to Mr Broomfield, who is now 94, about how his work captures the changes in modern British society.
