Discover the Caribbean’s rich history and its strong connections to Leeds with this exhibition of photographs, film, people’s stories, old documents and new writing at Room 700, Leeds Central Library. 

Over the past decade photographer Tim Smith has travelled back to his childhood home of Barbados, as well as many other places in the Caribbean with close connections to Britain. His photographs are a celebration of the everyday life, landscapes and light of the English-speaking Caribbean. Tim’s photos are shown alongside his father Derek’s pictures of life in the Caribbean during the 1950s and 60s, as well as a film exploring carnival, people’s memories and poetry from Khadijah Ibrahiim, and material from Leeds Central Library’s collection curated by Chapeltown based arts project Heritage Corner.

Come along to see if you can recognise people and places you know, on the streets of Leeds or perhaps in the Caribbean itself!

Supported by the Geraldine Conner Foundation, with funding from Leeds Inspired.
