Wed 30 May - Sun 22 Jul Wakey Wakey, Grime and Shine


Mark Ratcliffe is a photographer interested in documentation, with a recent focus to capture his own locality. “Local Colour” is the result of his most recent project, supported by Long Division as part of their ‘Manifesto for a New Wakefield’ project.

Mark has documented the people of Wakefield and neighbouring towns going about their daily lives. By capturing his subjects in the same documentary style using bright, saturated colours and displaying them side by side, he brings together an array of local characters who represent the varying aspects of a fast changing community.

Places photographed include Wakefield, Castleford, Pontefract, Featherstone and South Elmsall.

Exhibition on display until Sunday 22nd July.
