Scunthorpe: Through Our Eyes

An open call exhibition featuring photographers from the local area. Scunthorpe and its surroundings have a wealth of interesting locations to inspire amateur and professional photographers alike – from the gritty urban and industrial areas of the town, through to the surrounding countryside, industry and agriculture. We wanted an exhibition that represents what it’s like to live in Scunthorpe today – as seen through the eyes of people that live here.

The resulting exhibition features the work of over 90 photographers from the local area, with a huge range of styles and approaches, of locations across the town and beyond.

 

Please note: The Nave and Chancel spaces are currently closed until spring 2024 due to work restoring the former St John’s Church building.
