Impressions Gallery's annual Photobook Fair returns with a spotlight on environmentally conscious approaches to photobook publishing, on 28 October 2023.
Morrissey came to prominence in the early 2000s among a generation of female photographers working with staged photography, often putting themselves in the picture. Throughout her career, the artist has combined performance, photography, and film to play real and fictional characters. Using herself, and in collaboration with others, Morrissey’s practice explores historic and contemporary ideas about women, family and the body. The exhibition brings back to Impressions Gallery selections from Morrissey’s seminal photographic series Seven Years (2001-2004) and Front, (2005-2007) both commissioned by Impressions and developed over long periods of time.
An exhibition which looks at the decline of the fishing industry in Hull during the 1970’s. A group exhibition by The People collaborative Nigel Walker, Julie Shakesby, Carmina Ripolles, Rob Bentley and David Drasdo.

Estuary is a photographic essay of the Humber and the challenges it faces. The beauty of the big skies, the ever changing light and the fluidity of water is a constant. However climate change, brought about in part by some of the key industries on this huge estuary, is threatening the environment and the human and wild life that are a part of it. The race is on to make changes and this photographic essay seeks to show the beauty and challenges the Humber faces.

This Separated Isle explores how concepts of ‘Britishness’ reveal an inclusive range of opinions and understandings about our national character. Based on the book Invisible Britain: This Separated Isle, the exhibition presents a diverse range of engaging photographic portraits of people from across the UK. Each portrait is accompanied with a poignant first person testimony that draws attention to each person’s story, placing them centre stage so that we can begin to understand their lives.
In the late 1980s and 90s Sheffield reached a pivotal moment in its history, one which saw it begin a journey of regeneration and transformation into the city we know today. The first steps on that journey were documented by a group of gifted photographers whose work reflected both the hope and hard realities of the time. Today, as major developments in the city see its landscape continuing to evolve, a new exhibition at Weston Park Museum re-presents those original photographs to chronicle a significant turning point for Sheffield and its people.
Modelling the Animal is a collection of photographs which consists of work made by Liza Dracup, John Darwell, Kate Mellor, Charlie Meecham and Terence Wright. The work focuses on the physical representation of and interaction with animals positioned in a space between art and science.
Through photography, film and audio, artist Kevin Crooks has been documenting a number of individuals and community groups situated in the port cities of Hull and Liverpool since 2017. Throughout the production of You’re Only Here for the Culture, Kevin has captured personal accounts from people who have been directly and indirectly impacted by the legacy of both European Capital of Culture in Liverpool and UK City of Culture in Hull, ten years apart. Kevin wanted to explore how in the short and long-term future these significant cultural events may alter and affect communities in these cities.
A new exhibition portraying the skills and satisfaction of manual occupations is coming to The Treasure House, Beverley, on Saturday 10 November. The creation of photographer Peter Barker, ‘Working Hands’ is a series of photographs which show how hand and mind are linked in skilled work, from bookbinding to sheepshearing, from hat making to dog grooming. The photographs suggest a connection between inner and outer worlds, between body and mind, and between thinking and doing.
