Leeds is my city of choice in the UK, I study here for 6 months of the year and live in the city. Leeds is a creative city, a centre for creatives and is perfect for professionals and amateur photographers to start creating work. The city is surrounded by rolling hills and the city itself is full of wonderful people that are great to document. The people are friendly which helps you to blend in when you have a camera placed in front of your face. The image below is of the Leeds market, a building that has stood for over 100 years and hosts small stalls selling everything from fish to furniture.
My book Looked at Street Photography in Leeds in the UK, I wanted to highlight the busy city by looking at the few people who take the time during their day to have a break and take a time out. I went with black & white as this prevented the eye being caught by bright colours in the background, this helped you to focus on the subject matter of the images.
