SUN29 – 2017 Awards Announced… … at THE GALLERY AT 164, Duke Street, LS9 8AG

Last night this years Shot Up North – SUN29 Photography Awards were announced in Leeds…

I’m very proud to say that I’ve had two of my recent documentary photographs selected into the 50 winning entries. The competition is strictly only open to professional photographers working outside London,  Judging for the SUN Awards is done anonymously by an independent curating judge, selected each year from amongst our leading creative industry peers. This years solo curator was Peter Mitchell, Manchester born documentary photographer known for documenting Leeds and the surrounding area for more than 40 years. At last nights exhibition opening Peter did a fantastic talk/slideshow about his times as a photographer over the last four decades, delivered with plenty of good northern humour.

SUN29 is made into an exhibition, published into a book and on the Shot Up North web site. Please take look at the whole book online and below are a my two award winning images. I’m very chuffed with these images and hope you enjoy them too. H
