The new year starts with an exciting event in Leeds: a talk entitled Through the Eyes of Shirley Baker will take place on Saturday 25th January, at 3pm at the Hyde Park Picture House in Leeds.
This event is to celebrate the launch of new book Shirley Baker written by Lou Stoppard, containing previously unseen work. The talk is presented by Village books, Leeds. Lou Stoppard, writer and editor of Shirley Baker will be discussing the photographer’s work with Griselda Pollock, Professor of Social and Critical Histories of Art at the University of Leeds, and Anna Douglas, curator of several major exhibitions of Shirley Baker’s work.
The Hyde Park Picture House is a small Grade II-listed independent cinema set in the university area of Leeds; the building is set to close in February for extensive restoration and renewal work. We are delighted to present the talk in this esteemed and well-loved cinema and feel that Shirley, with her respect for the importance and value of community structures, would approve!
