About

Between 2002 and 2006 David Spero documented buildings in London that are used as churches. They feature none of the traditional religious architecture that symbolises power and wealth. Instead these often unconsecrated spaces, originally intended for uses other than worship are located in industrial estates, shopping parades, houses, cinemas, pubs and commercial properties.

New and previously unseen images of churches in West Yorkshire, commissioned by the National Media Museum in 2010 will also be displayed. These new works were funded by imove, a program supported by Legacy Trust UK, Yorkshire Forward and Arts Council England

The exhibition offers an audio guide providing insight into the images, an activity sheet to help adults guide children around the show and a tactile element for visually impaired visitors is also available

David Spero's accompanying book Churches is available from the Museum shop.
