Family snaps from holiday star in show

Have your say

HOLIDAY snaps taken by ordinary folk are the stars of the show at a new photography exhibition by Sheffield artist Pete McKee.

The Wish I Were Here display is a collection of photos sent to the artist by members of the public.

Pete asked people to send him their favourite British holiday pictures regardless of whether they brought back ‘good, bad, happy and sad memories’.

He said the exhibition had uncovered a wealth of people sharing their family memories.

Pete said: “There is nothing to hide in these photographs.

“It’s there to be seen by everybody, the frailties of the human being.

“We’ve got a fantastic photograph of a boy about to hit his mum over the head with a spade who is laughing at him after he wet his pants.”

The exhibitions runs until Saturday, July 30, at A Month of Sundays on Sharrow Vale Road in Sheffield.
