Kevin Boniface | 10th August 2021

Kevin Boniface marks over a decade of documenting Huddersfield in words and film.

On the 3rd of August 2010 I began a project with the working title The Most Difficult Thing Ever. My intention was to build a portrait of the area in which I live and work. Making use of the ‘blog’ format, I committed to regular updates comprising a short piece of descriptive text and accompanying video. To date, the project has lasted over ten years and has spawned various exhibitions, readings, and a book, Round About Town published by Uniformbooks in 2018 ( This film samples ten years of video from the project, listing every featured location beginning and ending with the bottle bank in Southgate, Huddersfield.
