Join us tonight to meet the photographer and author of this new book. The talk will last about an hour.

Living cities never stand still, but when their people move out, what relics are left behind? Denzil Watson has been exploring Sheffield’s discarded spaces for over 30 years, photographing the fragile splendour of city buildings whose future has expired – shattered edifices whose time has been and gone.

Sheffield In Ruins is a fascinating photographic record of Sheffield locations that once teemed with life, but that found themselves empty and unwanted as the city’s story moved on.
