‘Unexpected Salford’ (2020)
Heather Glazzard is an artist originally from West Yorkshire. Their work deals with class, sexuality and gender politics; in an intimate reflection of the LGBT+ community.
They graduated from BA Fashion Image Making and Styling at the University of Salford in 2018. After taking part in our Graduate Scholarship scheme, they have gone on to a successful photographic practice – with clients including Vice, Dazed, and i-D magazines.
For this micro-commission, Heather has revisited and reflected on their own body of photographic work made in 2018:
“The work aims to look back on how Salford changed my life, and how the struggles were over come from a present version of myself…this work gives me time to really reconnect with a place that pushed me to be where I am today.
“It felt good to feel completely free in this commission – often it’s hard for this to happen. I felt like I spoke some of my truths and my memories from Salford.”
