'Nothing Lasts Forever' explores and reflects upon key bodies of work from Peter Mitchell's remarkable career as one of the twentieth century's most important colour photographers.

Mitchell is best known for his photographs of Leeds through the 1970s and 1980s and this retrospective includes photographs from across the decades including the pioneering 'A New Refutation of the Viking 4 Space Mission', photographs capturing the demise of the Quarry Hill Flats in Leeds, the otherwordly Yorkshire Scarecrows as well as previously unseen photographs and items from the artist's personal collection.

The exhibition marks nearly half a century since Mitchell's first exhibition in the Education Gallery of Leeds City Art Gallery in 1975 and is accompanied by a new publication 'Nothing Lasts Forever' by RRB Photobooks.

The exhibition is free to visit.
