We had a fantastic line up of speakers giving their perspectives on the vast and changing landscape of documentary concerns and practices, practitioners; Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen, Al Baker, Christopher Bethell, Evelina Simkute,  John Darwell, Daniel Tierney,  presenting their projects and methodologies as well as, contemporary theoretical debates and discussions from Thomas Dukes curator of the Open Eye gallery and photographer / author David Bate.

Tour de France 2014 – the Grand Depart

The Grand Depart of the Tour de France came to the UK from the 5th to the 7th of July.
Two staff from Photography, Jon Purcell and David Dennison, documented different aspects of the Tour in a number of Yorkshire locations. Photography student Laura Shepherd followed the Tour in France, accompanied by two MA Publishing students who will be producing a book of the event within the next few weeks.

Jonathan Purcell documented the area at the top of Cragg Vale – England’s longest continuous gradient. As the climb reached its peak many cycling fans waited at Blackstone Edge Reservoir before the descent into Ripponden.

David Dennison concentrated on the route in Wensleydale and Swaledale, particularly the way in which local businesses and communities responded to the big event.
