Abandoned Yorkshire Photography Exhibition 2 - 5 November 2016

CARDIGAN ROAD LS6 1LJ

An exhibition exploring the theme of space and place.

"Place is security, place is freedom" - yi-fu tuan

The exhibition is located at Left Bank Leeds and has been composed specifically for the space. Showing the work of Abandoned Yorkshire at this location is particularly poignant as the Grade II* listed former church building was once abandoned. In 2002 a local charity purchased the amazing building and began raising funds to repair the building before it was open to the public again in 2009.

"Abandoned Yorkshire is a collective of urban explorers whose stunning photography captures lost heritage and documents our changing environment. In an era of change and development, it is easy to overlook buildings that are no longer in use but these remains give us an insight into the past. In their prime these would been significant landmarks housing the latest in medical innovation, places of employment, picture houses, grand homes and more. Many of these buildings will be reclaimed by nature of demolished and when they are gone, these images will provide a visual record of the spaces."
