Welcome to Leeds

Throughout my induction week i was asked to look around different places and tell a story within my images. My first story begins in Leeds. As i live in Leeds i wanted to show what i thought Leeds was about and what people would be interested in doing within the city. I haven’t gone for the obvious new stylish buildings such as Trinity shopping centre or for the old beautiful buildings like the town hall, i have however decided to show the different places to drink throughout Leeds. Most people i meet throughout the city say they’re here to see the night life, therefore i decided to document the different places where people may go and enjoy themselves. My images show the rough pubs at ends of streets to the night clubs all in a row to the higher end bars near by, some may say the rough to the better of within the drinking range.
From my shoot i believe that i have manged to document the different styles of pubs around Leeds. The places, the buildings and the style of pub are all very easy to spot, even to pick out where you yourself would like to spend you’re say/evening/night/morning. I decided to focus my view points of the pubs on the names and entrances to give of the the aroma of the different places. I find that each place is different to the others and that can be spotted between the images.
However if i were to do this shoot again i would also go round the different places at night and capture the type of people and the pub to show what it has to offer both day and night as i believe this would influence more people to give Leeds a try and enjoy themselves however and wherever suits them.
