Steel Making in Sheffield, Documentary photography by Martin Pick
Nestled in Sheffield’s Donvalley area, now home to outlets of entertainment and consumerism, exists a world of molten metal and immense machinery that is the Sheffield Forgemasters, “Steel Making in Sheffield” showcases a body of work by photographer Martin Pick which aims to unearth this industrious landscape.
Known as the ‘Steel City’ Sheffield’s history is synonymous with the production of steel, although,today, many see an industry in decline, reminiscent of a bygone era. Pick’s work however, though his informal portraits interspersed with vivid scenery, presents an industry at the heart of people’s lives. www.martin-pick.co.uk Curated by Rachel Kidd and Catherine Smyth
