SEPTEMBER 30 - OCTOBER 31 2020
Our Diary is a self published photography zine, documenting life in the Wakefield district - funded by Wakefield Council and initiated by Emily Ryalls.
"this too shall pass" grew from the initial instalment at Merrie Studios to Unit 43 in The Ridings Centre. The exhibition was directed by Emily Ryalls, production was led by Niámh Donnelly and design & promotion was managed by Katie Hopkins.
Starting in June 2020, Emily began directing a project which would bring together 10 Wakefield-based creatives - now known as The Merrie Collective - working to celebrate free and accessible print, self publishing and photography at a time when most of us were connected only via screens.
