In 2011 after nearly 200 hundred years of continuous production Tetley Brewery's in Leeds closed. I was appointed artist in residence in 2010 to work on a collaborative project with the workforce to document their working lives and help them articulate their hopes and fears through the long close down procedure. The outcomes from this residency were published in a book "T'Ales from the brewery" which was published by Carlsberg and presented to current and past members of the workforce.
The work was embargoed until 5 years after the closure of the brewery.
In 2017 Cafe Royal books were able to published a small selection of black and white photographs from this project
