Sheffield Beer Week: The People’s Photography Trail
The People’s Photography Trail returns to Sheffield Beer Week with the help of two hugely talented snappers in Mark Newton and Nicci Peet.
Taking place across six of the city’s venues, this year’s People’s Photography Trail will have a broad focus on the diverse range of people working in the beer industry, as well as, of course, the beer lovers that craft the character of many of this city’s pubs.
We’re thrilled to once again be working with Yorkshire photographer Mark Newton and, a new addition to the trail this year, Bristol-based snapper Nicci Peet. Both of whom will be producing this insightful photography-meets-beer trail for Sheffield Beer Week 2019.
As Brooklyn Brewery brewmaster Garret Oliver says, “beer is people”, and to us at Sheffield Beer Week, it’s crucial to promote diversity within the beer industry from brewers, delivery drivers, barkeeps and beyond.
This past year, Nicci Peet has been working on a project predominantly capturing women (cisgender, trans, genderqueer, women of colour) who work in the beer industry. “There’s a lot of talk and debate lately around sexism and inclusivity. Part of the problem is that there’s a lack of visual representation.”
The People’s Photography Trail is a major component of the Outdoor City element of this year’s Beer Week. The AccessAble is an extremely useful resource, aimed at providing more detailed information on accessibility for a variety of venues around Sheffield. This database is a work in progress and if you do have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch @SheffBeerWeek.
As you navigate the beertography trail throughout Sheffield Beer Week, add your own portrait to the digital exhibition on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #BeerIsPeople. We’ll be reposting some of our favourites over the week.
Venues: Bath Hotel, The Rutland Arms, Shakespeares, Sheffield Tap, Hop Hideout, Kelham Island Brewery Shop – Event Space.
