We are seeking people with an interest in photography and a passion for Bradford to guide our work and help us think of new ways to reach young people.

New Focus started in April 2012. Our Summer project was a collaboration with Art in Yorkshire. We directed a creative video to accompany the exhibition Personal Best by Paul Floyd Blake.

I think it’s been a great learning curve and it’s been fascinating to meet such different people who all share a love for our city.
