Photography by Dan Hayman

Dan Hayman
My work consists of a series of documentary portraits from a rural community within the heart of Suffolk (East Anglia). The portraits show a slice of English society that is slowly becoming extinct as urban to rural migration overwhelmes traditional country values and people. These tradtional portraits are taken in the style of 18th century portrait painting aimed at enhancing the subject's nostalgic qualities.


Photography by Neil Pemberton

Neil Pemberton
Neil's work documents the Igloo youth hostel in Nottingham, Mansfield Road. His series of images aims to question the identity of the hostel and its inhabitants with a combination of interior shots and portraits.

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
