THE YORKSHIRE DALES PHOTOGRAPHIC GRID PROJECT
MARCH 2016 - FEBRUARY 2017
‘The Yorkshire Dales Photographic Grid Project’ aims to map every square kilometer of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Up to this point over 120 photographers are currently involved. Each have been allocated an area of the National Park, approximately 16 kilometers square. They have been tasked with taking a photograph on, or as close to as possible, the point at which the grid lines on the OS Map intersect. As well as being a photographic map of the dales, the project will also act as a visual archive of this stunning area.
All photographers have complete creative licence to capture their personal interpretation of an area that is close to their heart using what ever photographic medium they see fit. The photographs that are being produced for the project will be put into an online archive, which will exhibit the diversity of not just the Yorkshire Dales but also the people who have kindly given up their time to contribute. We are also staging an exhibition of selected works at the new Yoredale National Park Centre in Bainbridge, which will be free to view during August and September 2017. With interest from local media, including BBC Look North, it will be a great platform for photographers from all backgrounds, both amateur and professional alike.
