Leeds Art Gallery is thrilled to present a major retrospective of British documentary photographer Peter Mitchell.

Known for documenting Leeds throughout his career, the exhibition will explore and reflect upon key bodies of work from Mitchell’s remarkable career and feature works previously unseen by the public. Peter Mitchell has a long-rooted connection with Leeds and ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ marks nearly half a century since Mitchell’s first exhibition at Leeds Art Gallery in 1975.

‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ is his poetic title for the exhibition, which is accompanied by a new publication; together they create a timely opportunity to enjoy work by one of the most important early colour photographers of the 20th century.

A series of talks and family-friendly events will complement the exhibition throughout its run.
