LIZA DRACUP: Landmarks
17 September to 8 January 2017
New work by Yorkshire photographer Liza Dracup (www.lizadracup.co.uk/) inspired by the visualisation of the landscape of northern England found in the work of early photographers in the Mercer's photography collection.
The photographic print is of particular significance for Dracup as she explores the way in which the material qualities of the print hold onto its history.
