Sheffield 1991 - 1992 #1 - Uwe Bedenbecker

I was born and grew up in Essen, Germany, and later studied in Duisburg: Both cities are in the Ruhr area and have a long industrial history and in common that they underwent a structural change in the period from the 70s to the 90s. When I came to Sheffield in September 1991 to study at Sheffield City Polytechnic for almost 6 months as part of a semester abroad, I found many of the views and the atmosphere comparable to Essen and Duisburg. In my free time I roamed the city centre and the outskirts of Sheffield with my camera. More than 30 years after my stay, the photos are now published for the first time.

About Café Royal Books:

"Café Royal Books is the idea of Craig Atkinson, an artist and lecturer. Our first title was published in 2005.

Craig wanted to create a way to make artwork accessible to a wider audience. The solution needed to be small, functional, open to collaboration, affordable, and work independently of galleries. These ideas remain at the heart of what we do.

We’re a small family-run publisher based in England, next to the woodland, dunes, and windswept beaches of the North West coast — we’re always inspired by the vastness, calm and energy of this environment. 

We make weekly publications, focussing on documentary photography linked to Britain and Ireland, printed and bound locally by a small 170 year old printing company. Libraries and museums around the world collect the books, so the work will remain preserved and accessible for many years. Our books don’t need batteries, or screens. We hope they will be used, create conversation and be passed down through family generations."
