Portraits of Readers

Photographs of Reading Sheffield participants during a Reading Sheffield social event in the Carpenter Room at Sheffield Central Library during 2014. Photography student Tom Stayte set up his equipment in a corner of the room and produced this series of splendid images documenting readers holding their favourite book or photograph from the 1940’s and 50’s.
