Mick Jones | Sheffield, 1960-70
Mick Jones was born and raised in Sheffield. Growing up on Park Hill he enrolled on a Graphic Design course at Sheffield College of Art in 1968. As part of his course work he was asked to photograph his home city of Sheffield. During 1969-1970 he came 'down from the hill' and let loose with his camera, he captured what he knew – the daily lives of the ordinary people of his home city. Mick’s photos of Sheffield are a stunning time capsule of the era and a brief insight into a world that now seems so distant.

It was a time of mods and rockers, skins and suedes – a bit of a rough and ready time for some, but there was hope for a brighter, more modern future. Sheffield has never wallowed in nostalgia, it has always been a progressive city – but often it’s important to look back and reflect, to see how the city and its people have changed.
