Barbara Winter (ne Letts) Newstead 1976-78

This is a selection of photos from the series Newstead which was created by Barbara Winter whilst studying photography at the then Trent Polytechnic (now Nottingham Trent) between 1976 and 78. Barbara documented life in the village, making many images of children, community events, home life and the pit yard. She produced a substantial book featuring over 40 images which she submitted for her final piece. This work has been largely unseen, many of the images here were copied using a digital camera when I met with Barbara this year, as such they are not perfect reproductions but give a sense of her work, the text from the front of the book is also included.
