Beeston Series #1

Following on from my last post, this is another series of photographs I took when I had access to a good quality camera. As well as exploring shapes, colours and views I attempted to produce some images to reflect and examine Beeston in south Leeds. Cross Flatts Park is for many people a central part of the community and in this post I am sharing some photographs that were taken in the park on a Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. Beeston is an area I am getting to know well and I have some clear ideas about it. Depicting my feelings about and perception of it through photography was very challenging but I enjoyed the endeavour and I will try again. I was going to add more narrative to these images but I have decided to try and let them speak for themselves. If you don’t know Beeston, or even if you do, what impression do you have of it as you look at the photographs below?

    Hi Becky, I’ve never been to Beeston, so this is all new for me. You ask what impression I get of the place – well, I get the feeling it’s a community comfortable in its own skin. I’m interested that the only people in your pics are hardly there (the arm in the cafe, the man lining the playing field), and I like that – people suggested but not shown. It feels like good, decent people inhabit this place. Is that the impression you wanted to give?
    Anyway – Ilike your photos very much. Love, Kim
