This April, acclaimed Bradfordian social documentary photographer Ian Beesley turns 70. He has spent the last 5 decades documenting life in the North of England. He had planned to retire this year. Instead, the appetite for his work is stronger than ever. So on April 27 a previously unseen selection of Beesley’s work selected from his archive of over 200,000 images goes on show at Salts Mill, Saltaire.

A Calder River Journey, is a personal reflection of the river, past and present, the route starting in Calderdale, via Wakefield, ending as it flows into the river Aire.



Russell's approach was influenced by the Canticle of brother Sun prayer, where St Francis seems to bring nature to a higher light: "Praised be to you my Lord, with all your creators, especially brother Sun." "Praised be to you sister water, which is very useful and humble and precious and chaste."

Yoo-TOH-pee-a is an exhibition which looks at the changes in social space, the place of community and the regeneration process. This process is all around us - and is spreading through Leeds over time. This is the first in a programme of exhibitions, events and workshops in which we try to create a new form of dialogue between the community and change. The initial exhibition focuses on being the last use of a space about to be removed.  From the rubble, something new rises.

Everyone has a need to play. We develop this need almost immediately. It is an altered state, a form of concentration that offers the purest of pleasure.

Games were invented to focus this need, to court this pleasure. From the simplest street games, to the most intricate disciplines, they all follow the same principle – to play, to learn, to test, to compete, to enjoy. Football has become the most popular game ever played. What comes with such lasting magnitude is culture and history, a history full of love and inclusion, prejudice and intolerance. Football reflects the times.

13 February 2018, 18:30 to 20:30

In partnership with LensThink Yorkshire and Miniclick, we bring you a chance to network, chat and share your work with other photographers in Yorkshire.
