Join the Leeds Photo Hunt as it takes a tour to the south of the city, opening up venues along the way from local places of worship, to community groups and pavilions mixed in amongst the ordinary, everyday life.
If you love south Leeds or have a passion for street photography this is an event for you. We’re hoping to catch Temple Works, St Luke’s Church, the mosque on Hardy Street – and a host of other places in the area.
It’s part of the Looking Good Holbeck and Beeston project – which is encouraging individuals and local groups to take positive photographs of their community and the people in it – and forms part of Leeds Digital Festival.
The idea is simply to tell your story as you go, taking pictures of the local surroundings and sharing the faces and stories of a local community as it goes about its daily business. For the first time many community groups, faith organisations and community centres will open their doors to photographers to share life as they know it. How you choose to take your pictures is up to you, from vintage film cameras, polaroids and disposable cameras to mobile phones, digital and high-tech professional cameras – whatever works for you.
The Leeds Photo Hunt will lead an eager gathering of local residents, groups and budding street photographers on a journey from St Matthew’s Community Centre in Holbeck though meadows, mosques and main streets into Beeston. Refreshments await at the end of the walk!
Meet us at St Matthew’s Community Centre in Holbeck at 12 noon on Saturday, 26th November armed with your camera of choice. The event will start at 12.15pm. We will have a small number of cameras to hand out
Part of the ‘Looking Good Holbeck & Beeston’ project with Exposure Leeds, a selection of photographs from those taking part will be added to the new website for this project to tell the story of local life in South Leeds. The event is also organised by Health for All.
