Pitsmoor’s Sunday Best

Story by Tim Neal | Photos by Jonathan Turner

Jonathan Turner is a professional photographer based in Leeds. I have been working with him to produce a series of photographs across Burngreave of people in their ‘Sunday Best’.

This doesn’t just refer to the way people dress to go to church however. The project, supported by Arts Council England and Yorkshire Artspace, is looking at clothing (our outward appearance) in relation to themes of community and identity.

Some of the photographs will be used in an exhibition in the autumn of 2018 at Exchange Place Studios on Castlegate, and published in free arts magazine Now Then.

Please get in contact with Jonathan or me on the emails below if you’d like to know more. You can see more of the photographs from this project and others at:
