Collection of the week: Robin Dale

Photographer Robin Dale was born in Stockton-on-Tees in north-east England in 1940 and became fascinated with photography as a teenager, embarking on a study of urban life in Britain in the late 1960s and '70s. Many of his images show people going about their daily lives in Teesside, and capture moments of joy, contemplation and solitude, not to mention some fantastic fashion. These photographs have an emotional appeal, while his images of rural and industrial landscapes often reflect the harshness of the economic conditions of the time as well as revealing unexpected beauty.

In Robin's book Twelve on a Roll, John Tierney writes, 'his images are the product of a profound love of people and places. He shares in their joys and sadnesses and invites not passivity but active engagement on the part of the viewer. Ordinary men and women become extraordinary, which is what they have always been.'
