In 1988 Untitled Gallery launched the Sheffield Project. Entitled ‘Regeneration’, this was an extensive three-year project that involved several photographic commissions to document the significant changes that were taking place in the city. Berris Conolly was awarded one of the first commissions and decided to focus primarily on the industrial heartland of the Lower Don Valley, which had become a scene of partially cleared brownfield sites and ongoing demolition.
The project culminated in 1991 with a major exhibition, timed to coincide with the staging of the World Student Games in Sheffield, and which featured the work of all the photographers. It was shown in several galleries across the city. A retrospective show of the work is now scheduled for exhibition at Weston Park Museum in Sheffield.
