A new exhibition portraying the skills and satisfaction of manual occupations is coming to The Treasure House, Beverley, on 10 November.
The creation of photographer Peter Barker, ‘Working Hands’ is a series of photographs which show how hand and mind are linked in skilled work, from bookbinding to sheepshearing, from hat making to dog grooming. The photographs suggest a connection between inner and outer worlds, between body and mind, and between thinking and doing.
