Tony Bock
No Renumeration for Placekeepers: Social Landscapes of Britain in the 1970s

April 30–May 28, 2016
Fine & Dandy Gallery
2017 Dundas St W

The Britain that Bock found in the 1970s was caught somewhere between the past and the future. The character of the people had changed little since the hard days following the war, and the prosperity that was to come in the 1990s had yet to arrive. Bock was always more interested in the commonplace and everyday, rather than the extraordinary. The observer goes unnoticed, documenting moments that have become a record of change.
