Signal Film and Media present a compelling new photographic exhibition WEST COAST PHOTO at The Dock Museum, Barrow-in-Furness. The exhibition launches their new year-long programme celebrating the West Coast of Cumbria through creative digital and photographic projects.

The exhibition brings together for the first time a wide collection of photographs and video works by 27 local and national artists to explore the ways photographers, filmmakers and artists have documented the region from the early 20th Century to now.

West Coast Photo uncovers the diverse character of this region of Cumbria, an area separated from the idyllic Lake District National Park by a line drawn on a map. Often overlooked in favour of its neighbouring district, the West Coast is an 100-mile stretch of coastline boasting starkly beautiful natural and man-made landscapes which surround industrial coastal towns and are scattered with past and present industrial installations. Its character has predominantly been shaped through iron-ore and coal mines - now replaced with nuclear and military industries.
