Photographs of Bradford in Yorkshire

I have just spent a few days in Bradford in Yorkshire, Northern England. The city was my home for a few years in the 1970’s. I have thought about photographing this location for some time and finally got round to it.

In this blog post I am featuring a few of the themes that interest me:

  • The beautiful Victorian architecture (limited by major renovations taking place in the city centre at the moment).
  • Some of the buildings in and around the University where I studied four decades ago.
  • Derelict locations which serve as a reminder of the city’s history.
  • Spectacular mosques which have become recent additions to the city skyline.

The city receives a mixed press. During my recent visit I could not help thinking that there are better days ahead for it. The new Westfield Shopping Centre due to open in 2015 will transform the city centre. Alongside this are other developments expected to change the city’s fortunes.

Here is  a selection of images created in August 2014. To see more, please get in touch.
