"My photographs show things that matter, though barely recognised as such."
Peter Mitchell has been taking 'snaps' of Leeds for over 40 years, but his formative training was in typography and graphic design, which he studied at Hornsey College of Art before moving to Leeds in 1972. Part of his output since that time has been a series of exhibition posters and graphic works, which were included in his recent publication on RRB 'Some Thing means Everything to Somebody'.
Now six of these exhibition posters are available as full size poster prints, litho printed on archival paper. Each poster is produced in an edition of 100 and are signed and numbered by Peter Mitchell. The Derwent was a groundbreaking commission by Impressions Gallery in 1980, in which Mitchell explored the landscape and way of life along the Derwent River in Yorkshire.
