A while back I was invited to photograph Bramley Baths, an Edwardian public swimming pool in Bramley Leeds. Ths pool had been facing severe restrictions in it’s opening hours due to government cut backs, and so there was a srong local campaign against the restricted hours.
It is not very often nowadays that you get permission to photograph inside a public swimming baths, so I jumped at the chance, having been inside on other occasions I knew how nice it was inside. The photo’s, plus an article on the history of the baths that I was also asked to write has now been published on the Looking Good Bramley web site. The aims of Looking Good Bramley are mentioned below, the text of which was borrowed from their web site, this is also where the article and images are click the link below to visit their site.
“Looking Good Bramley is a voluntary project delivered by and with Bramley residents, in combination with photographers spread across the city and some beyond, who are already involved with Exposure Leeds. The aim is to involve local people in producing images that celebrate day to day life, the usual and unusual that exists in this area.”
