Archive Sheffield

Sheffield is not place, it is people

Archive Sheffield was initiated by the late great Clive Egginton, friend, collaborator and all round good guy. An inspiration to those who met and worked alongside him and a true advocate of the art of storytelling and narrative through sequential imagery.

A citywide archive was set up to represent the many different facets of Sheffield life by telling the stories of the people who lived and live in its many different and diverse communities. Clive initially captured this through his own level of intrigue and curiosity.

Due to his generous nature he invited others in to contribute. So in Clive’s absence many other photographers continue to grow the archive and document Sheffield – past, present and future.

We helped create a platform and framework for this incredible body of work to inhabit. Long may the current group of contributors continue to get under the skin of our fascinating city and keep creating truly memorable imagery.
