authorPhilip Lickley

The self-taught documentary photographer has spent the last 30 years recording the everyday lives of people in the diverse communities of West Yorkshire, resulting in critical acclaim and several exhibitions. 

“I hope this exhibtion appeals to, not just the diverse communities, but historians, photography enthusiasts, and people interested in social history. It’s also old school photography, from black and white negatives.

“The Jewish community have been in Bradford for a long time. The first community came at the turn of the industrial revolution, and then of course from Germany. This exhibition helps recognize that, and acknowledge that. But also, with the exhibition being in a cathedral, that shows how diverse communities can work together and support each other.”
