Jeeves & Jericho

Jeeves & Jericho, Corn Exchange, Corn Exchange, Call Lane, Leeds, West Yorkshire, 2014 • 1920s flat-cap geezer meets 1990s Mancs baggy in cartoon collision of two tea-pouring Northern stereotypes. And all in the stunning arena of Leeds Corn Exchange, which is being refurbished as a hipster shopping arcade. The ultra-wide angle shots are courtesy of my new camera – I love it sooo much! (Sony Nex 6, cheap as chips for what you get … the latest iteration is called the Sony a6000, in case anyone’s interested.)

  1. I used to love going into this place after my meetings with Asda (a previous life designing packaging for big corporate companies, long behind us now!). I’m glad it’s getting a second life. It’s an incredible building.

      • Went on an Rurex trip last night (Rural Exploration, (c) Me 2014) – we might be the only ones to ever visit parts of this location before it’s demolished. Imagine my joy when I loaded up my Alpha 100 to find 70% of the images corrupted, albeit with some slightly arty results in one case! It has to be an A6000, what a great excuse to buy one…

  2. Rurex, what a brilliant coinage. What location were you rurexing (if it’s not too secret)? Re the pix, surely the problem is with the card, not the camera? But any excuse to get a new camera! A6000 looks good.
