Street scene, Leeds 1970

RPF17 Reclaiming Our Cultural Landscapes is pleased to invite Nick Hedges to participate in our travelling exhibition at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery 6 – 21 May 2017 and Wolverhampton Art Gallery 23 May – 7 June 2017.

This photograph is of an elderly lady at the end of her street and 2 boys playing tag. It was part of a survey made for Shelter of housing in the inner cities between 1968-1972.

“I’ve always worked in a documentary tradition without setting up or posing photographs. I was born in 1943 in Worcestershire and trained at Birmingham College of Art. My work is in the collections of the V and A, the National Media Museum, the Galerie Reina Sofia in Madrid, and The Library Birmingham.” Nick Hedges
