Titanic Exhibition at The Chapel Gallery

Event ended

While for most of us the sinking of the Titanic brings to mind images of a James Cameron’s blockbuster featuring a fresh-faced Leonardo DiCaprio and red-headed Kate Winslet, a photographic exhibition at the University of Gloucestershire’s Chapel Gallery this month will be providing visitors with a very different impression.

Dedicated to the memory of all who died in the disaster and to the families they left behind, photojournalism student Daniel Down was inspired to create the exhibition as a result of a family connection with the ill fated liner.

The photographer’s great, great uncles and a further two relatives died in the 1912 tragedy, all from Southampton and working as crew in the liners’ boiler rooms. The Titanic sailed from Southampton on her maiden voyage on 10 April 1912, striking an iceberg and sinking to the bottom of the icy Atlantic Ocean just five days later.

The exhibition will be showing a series of photographs depicting places in Southampton associated with the Titantic’s crew and passengers – many of which are not open to the general public. Visitors can therefore expect to catch a rare glimpse of the dockside berth the Titanic sailed from, where her crew lived and drank, where the wealthy gentry stayed the night before she sank – as well as artefacts recovered from the bodies of her crew.
