A Common Thread :: Traders

I’ve been working a lot on Spital Hill in Pitsmoor, Sheffield again over the past couple of weeks, photographing more of the people who run businesses and work here. I’ve been based in Burngreave library again – thank you to Mary and Janet especially for all their help.  One of the great things about this project (apart from meeting a lot of very wonderful people) has been seeing the range of things on offer on Spital Hill – it’s kept surprising me as I’ve gone around, and found new things springing up all the time.  I’ve also set up the studio in some very interesting little corners of shops, which I’ve shown here.

The East House has changed owners and become the place to go to for ice cream sundaes on Spital Hill…
