Exhibition of Drifting by the Leeds & Liverpool

Exhibition of Drifting by the Leeds & Liverpool

I’m delighted to share my Drifting by the Leeds & Liverpool project with the people of Leeds and beyond in an outdoor exhibition around the Leeds Canal Basin area. The exhibition features installations that link the viewer to the film and project website through QR codes and mobile technology. It asks the question ‘what will you see today?’ as a prompt for viewers to engage in the everyday condition of the canal’s landscape; a theme that runs through the Drifting by The Leeds and Liverpool short film.

The project has a dedicated website that shares information about its making and collaborators in the making of the short film. So far, the work has been featured on BBC Radio Merseyside, in The Yorkshire Post and local press. It was also one of twenty finalists in the Association of Photographers’ student awards (places category).

Please visit the photos of the exhibition at https://leedsandliverpool.co.uk/exhibitions and let me know what you think in the visitor guest book below.

The way we view and use the landscape changes with time, places that are only a few yards away become invisible. This work demonstrates, for me, a fresh connection, a new way of looking at the landscape. The varied exhibition locations connects with each photograph and this adds context. I really appreciate all the hard work that has gone in to creating this exhibition.

Really impressed by your professionalism and tenacity - getting the work out there. Super culmination! Good luck with it. It’s going to do really well. SJ

I have loved following this work. The Leeds and Liverpool Canal is, I think, the only canal in England that I have not travelled along. Even though I don't know the scenery always, the scenes bring back many memories. Thank you for sharing.

These are amazing Fitz. I love the idea of the distribution giving 'tasters' to the exhibition. I love the graffiti artists work too especially the bike in the tunnel. I absolutely love graffiti anyway. Great work and very well done.
