Bradford City Park 12 months ago you’d have seen few people enjoying themselves in Bradford city centre on a summer’s afternoon, but with the new City Park by the Town Hall, it’s all change.

Photography, when roughly translated from the original Greek, means “writing with light”. You may have known that already, but when you think about it, it doesn’t really mention “subject” or “composition”, or anything technical about the camera. It’s just the recording of “light”. One of the points we make on the “Discover” workshops is to look for interesting “light” – on Friday afternoon I was in Headingley, a suburb of Leeds, which isn’t traditionally photogenic. But as the low, winter sun set, the light bounced off the long terraces creating…
