Welcome to Barnsley

Ongoing project. For the last couple of years I have worked in Barnsley, a town in the North of England. These photos were taken during my lunch break or walking to/from the station - they sum up aspects of the town to me. A mixture of surveillance warnings, interesting characters, tradition and vandalism.
