photography exhibition Abandoned Yorkshire is a collective of urban explorers whose stunning photography captures lost heritage and documents our changing environment. Left Bank Leeds, a once abandoned building is a fitting venue to exhibit this work.ABANDONED YORKSHIREIn an era of change and development, it’s easy to overlook buildings that are no longer in use but these remains give us an insight into the past. In their prime these would have been significant landmarks housing the latest in medical innovation, places of employment, picture houses, grand homes and more. Many of these buildings will be reclaimed by nature or demolished and when they’re gone these images will be all that remains, providing a visual record of these spaces. Forced to operate covertly, one day in the future these urban explorers will be valued like historians.Join us on the opening night to hear Abandoned Yorkshire give a public talk about their work for the first time.EXHIBIT YOUR IMAGESThis exhibition is the latest in a series exploring space and place.
