Every Object Tells a Story

Have you got an object that is special – something that reminds you of a time, a place, a person or an occasion? Is it your precious object?

Bradford Revealed is an online gallery of the special objects, places and things that make our lives different. . Every one of pictures has been submitted by people with a connection to Bradford.  Bradford Revealed has been created in partnership with Bradford Museums and Galleries and Bradford2025.

Do you have something to share? Just take a photo, write a few words about it and send it on to us and you can be part of the exhibition.

Do You Have a Precious Object?

Precious objects come in all shapes and sizes – old or new, large or small, fragile or robust. Your precious object may be as flimsy as a letter, as treasured as a gemstone or as fragile as a battered teddy bear. It could be as large as a tree, as small as a button, as timeless as a rock or as emotional as a valentine’s card.

Here’s How to Get Involved

Take a photo of your precious object, ideally in landscape format.  For some top tips on how to take really good photos using a smart phone check out this short film by Bradford photographer Carolyn Mendelsohn.

Then tell us something about the object you’re sharing with us in around 50 words or so – why it’s precious, what it means to you, the memories it contains. We’d love to know more.
