Steel City is a project about the city of Sheffield by English photographer Leticia Batty. Sheffield is a town with its identity forged from its industrial past. This project stands as a testimony to this; an account of the defining structural elements that shape a city. In this series the pragmatic yet intimate nature of the images project the effect of the grind of industry over the city of Sheffield.
Leticia Batty (b.1993) is originally from Worksop, Nottinghamshire and now resides in London. Leticia is a photographic artist who specialises in medium format colour photography, with the Worksop and Sheffield area as the biggest influence on her work. Her practice explores themes of identity, landscape, British politics and the self.
