We English is an investigation of the English at leisure. Between August 2007 and September 2008, Simon Roberts travelled the length and breadth of England, documenting people at play, relaxing and revelling.
Roberts’ journey was influenced by a long and rich tradition of landscape and social photography. Included in the exhibition was a new photograph made in Bradford during 2009. This was commissioned by the museum to pay homage to some of the defining landmarks of the city.
