This year we're working with Leeds based photographer Lizzie Coombes (aka Betty Lawless on Instagram) to capture Leeds' creative and cultural buzz. When we first talked to her about the idea she, quite rightly, pointed out that this was a bit of a tall order because there's so much stuff going on in Leeds right now and that she could fill every day photographing the culture and creativity in and around the city. To make things more manageable we decide to give every month a theme. In February we kicked off the project with the theme UP and, to get things off to a flying start, selected images from the Betty Lawless archive which you can see over on our Flickr page.
The theme for March is MAKE so Lizzie is now on a mission to photograph all manner of interesting stuff being made in Leeds. We haven't quite decided on the theme for April yet but if you've got any ideas than drop us an email firstname.lastname@example.org .
