The Designers Republic, David Bailey, Give Up Art, Universal Everything and more have designed a set of 12 Christmas cards based on festive films. Organised by Sheffield-based Our Favourite Places, the cards will be sold to raise money in memory of Sheffield-born photographer Shaun Bloodworth who died in 2016.
“Shaun took portraits of everyone from John Simpson to John Shuttleworth. His work features in the National Portrait Gallery’s collections. His interest in underground music saw him regularly collaborate with Mary Anne Hobbs on images that have been seen around the globe, of the likes of Benga, Skream and Hudson Mohawke. And his move into filmmaking had a massive impact on how Sheffield is perceived both within the city and around the world,” say the organisers. “Friends of Shaun are a group of creative folk who worked with, and miss, Shaun. They first came together last year, organising an auction and events in Sheffield and London to raise money for the Bloodworth family. Now they’re back, and they’re feeling festive.”
