Nothing Lasts Forever

Peter Mitchell

Publisher's description

Nothing Lasts Forever Is the first retrospective monograph of work by Peter Mitchell, best-known for his chronicles of the city of Leeds. The book is published to coincide with a major exhibition of the photographer’s work at Leeds Art Gallery from 17 May 2024 - 06 October 2024, nearly 50 years since he first exhibited there.

The book acts as a visual guide to navigate Mitchell’s long-rooted and poetic connection with Leeds. Regarded as the one of the most important early colour photographers of the 20th century, the book illustrates how words and objects have also played a key role in developing his distinctive and accessible vision.
