In a heartfelt tribute to the English city of Leeds (and its surrounding areas), photographer and creative producer Hannah Platts has just released a selection of the most recent photographs in her latest publication, Nosey Parker. The 72-page hardback book is the first to be published by Platform, the new publishing project by RRB Photobooks that hopes to support emerging voices in British documentary photography.

Capturing colorful shopfronts, hidden gems, and the mundane moments that make the county of Yorkshire magical, Platt’s depiction of Leeds oozes wry humor and character. From a photo of chickens crossing the road to an ice cream van precariously parked on a slipway to the sea, Platt's work shows the diverse and distinct backdrops that make up her city. Like the best coffee table books on photography it's one to return to again and again.
