Quiet Places: Photographs by Linda Benedict-Jones

Wiltshire Windows, 1977, Linda Benedict-Jones
Thursday 20 September 2018 - Saturday 20 April 2019

In 1978 American photographer Linda Benedict-Jones visited Sheffield and photographed some of the city’s iconic landmarks, and the following year an exhibition showcasing a decade of Benedict-Jones’s photographs was held at the Graves Gallery.

At the time, six works were acquired for Sheffield’s visual art collection. This year the artist generously donated 14 further works to Sheffield that had been originally shown in the 1979 exhibition. This small display presents all 20 works demonstrating the artist’s talent for using black and white photography to capture a poignant sense of place marked by human presence and absence.

Benedict-Jones is a photographer and curator who began taking photographs in the 1960s. In 1969 she moved to Europe for 10 years, living and working in Portugal, France and the UK photographing urban and rural environments before returning to America.
