Jonathan Turner Photography
Street Studio – An exhibition of work by photographer Jonathan Turner.
Supported by Leeds Inspired, East Street Arts and Inkwell Arts.
Over the past year, Jonathan Turners Street Studio has been photographing individuals, families and community groups in Chapeltown with the aim of celebrating diversity through portraits of local residents.
Taking inspiration from roving street based ‘itinerant photographers’ of the late 19th and early 20th century, Jonathan has set up his ‘street studios’ at various locations in the community, and produced free portraits for all participants. A publication accompanying the exhibition is free to anyone who took part.
Jonathan is a lens-based artist living in Chapeltown. His work is primarily portrait based and often deals with issues around identity. He has a long history of working with communities, teaching photography skills and facilitating participatory photography projects.
The work is exhibited at two venues in Chapeltown (Union105 and Inkwell Arts). Opening with a free celebration event (everyone welcome!) on 28th March, including local music, and curry courtesy of Leeds Islamic Centre .
