BRADFORD Cathedral’s Photographer in Residence, Kate Abbey, is looking for new participants to take part in a photography project which will be exhibited this summer.

Kate has been at the Cathedral since 2020, where she has worked with its community to create a series of photographs depicting faith.

Her project has been through several changes due to Covid-19 restrictions, and what started as a look at the comings and goings of the Cathedral has turned into a more personal study of how individuals express their faith.

“Initially I was meeting people in gardens, on Zoom, and then eventually in their houses”, Kate said.

“I would discuss people’s faith with them, and then take their portrait.

“The process creates an intimacy and trust with the ‘sitter’, which shows through the images. The whole process is a very collaborative experience with both the sitter and photographer deciding how the image will look."

Kate wants to photograph a diverse group of people of different faiths within Bradford and is eager to find more participants who would like to get involved.

The work will be displayed in Bradford Cathedral this summer, where it will be open to the public - during the usual Cathedral opening hours - free of charge.
