Pho­tos show a dif­fer­ent side

Halifax Courier - - Business - By Jon Cron­shaw

A Halifax pho­tog­ra­phy stu­dio is pay­ing trib­ute to the finest tal­ents to come out of York­shire with a new ex­hi­bi­tion and book in­clud­ing our very own golden girl Han­nah Cock­roft. ‘York­shire Made Me’ was cre­ated by Lynne Fletcher and Jennifer Robertson at Kyte Pho­tog­ra­phy and in­cludes York­shire greats such as theatre di­rec­tor Bar­rie Rut­ter, broad­cast­erMichael Palin, rugby star Luke Robin­son, artist David Hock­ney and ac­tress Dame Judi Dench.

The ex­hi­bi­tion of 35 por­traits was un­veiled at York­shire Sculp­ture Park

The ex­hi­bi­tion saw over 1,500 people en­ter the gallery on its open­ing weekend, and will run un­til June 1.

An ac­com­pa­ny­ing book has also been pub­lished.

Only 200 have been printed and they are a cof­fee ta­ble type col­lec­tors book.

York­shire Made Me is a se­ries of in­ti­mate pho­to­graphs taken to show the real side of some of the re­gion’s leading achiev­ers.

Most of the pho­to­graphs were taken at the sit­ters’ homes.

There were no stylists, no fancy light­ing crew, no per­sonal as­sis­tants, no cater­ing vans parked on the lawn out­side - just the pho­tog­ra­pher, up close and per­sonal.
