A CELEBRATION OF THE FAMILIAR
They are landmarks so familiar that many people pass them each day without even noticing them – but photographer Keith Cooper is showing them in a new light.
These images are from a selection taken by the 52-year-old, who is set to display them in an exhibition in the city centre next month.
The professional architectural and landscape photographer, who lives in Leicester's West End, has captured some of the best-known buildings and monuments in the city.
Keith, who runs Northlight Images Photography, said he aimed to present the Leicester locations in "new and exciting ways".

"There is just so much of our city that people don't see," he said. "I want people who live here to appreciate a bit more of our city's heritage."
Keith's images will be on display at the Leicester People's Photography Gallery – the former library in Belvoir Street, Leicester city centre – from Wednesday, May 2 to Thursday, May 31.
The centrepiece is a detailed, 46ft-wide, print of the city centre. It was not possible to reproduce it here as it is so vast.
"The panoramic photograph of Leicester city centre at dusk pushes the boundaries of what is technically possible in a single print and is the largest and most detailed photograph of Leicester ever produced," said Keith. "The image file alone spans five DVDs worth of storage space.
"Many of the prints are only possible through recent advances in camera and printing equipment."
