Bar review: Alley Cats, Harrogate Road, Leeds“Geoff and I wanted to create a powerful exhibition that explores and celebrates woman,” she said.

“It’s about being more one thing; more than being ‘just’ a body, not being pristine or perfect – whatever that might be – and ultimately not being defined.”

The images displayed in the exhibition, which lasts until March 2019, were all taken in the bar itself.
