The Sheffield Project: Photographs of a Changing City

Friday 23 October 2020 - Monday 3 May 2021

During the 1980s, Sheffield’s Untitled Gallery, now Site Gallery, commissioned a series of photographers to document the city at a pivotal moment in its history. It was a time of great upheaval, which saw the aftermath of the Miners’ Strike, the steel industry’s workforce decimated, mass unemployment and dereliction. But it was also a time in which the city began to imagine its future, one that would include the Meadowhall retail development, the transformation of the lower Don Valley, and the World Student Games.

The Sheffield Project will show how these socially-engaged photographers, including John Davies, John Kippin, Anna Fox and more, reflected on this monumental period of change for the city and its people.
