Yorkshire is hard to pin down, and as this new book by renowned Hebden Bridge photographer John Morrison shows, there are many ‘Yorkshires’. There’s the Yorkshire of whippets and pigeons and flat-caps and other stereotypes. There are the milltowns still reeling from the collapse of major industries. Then there is the new dynamic, forward-looking Yorkshire: all business plans and executive waterside apartments. There’s the Yorkshire of great houses, built by families of note to glorify themselves, with money made in the slave trade. There are streets of back-to-back houses where privacy is just a pipedream. But there’s also the Yorkshire of moors, dales and wolds, criss-crossed by dry stone walls, where hardy farmers make a precarious living from the land as they have done for centuries. There’s the Yorkshire coastline, punctuated by fishing villages, extending from Staithes down to Spurn Head: the very end of Yorkshire. All these ‘Yorkshires’ are captured by John Morrison’s sensitive, enquiring camera.
