Laura Cronin, a photographer from Preston studying BA (Hons) Photography at Salford University, is asking residents to share their images of the city.
She is planning to make a book featuring a mixture of her own and other people’s photographs documenting everyday life around the city of Preston. A visual journal.
In her own words:
“I’m a photography student preparing for my final major project, which is going to be a community documentary project about the city of Preston. I am planning to make a photobook featuring photos taken by people from Preston, generally based on the idea of documenting our everyday life in the city.
“I am hoping for the final piece to be a kind of visual journal of people’s experiences living in Preston, showing the diversity of the city’s population. I would love as many people as possible to get involved!
“There’s much more info on how to submit your photos on my project blog here http://prestonphoto.tumblr.com/ (where I will also be showcasing everyone’s submissions). Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!”
Here are some of the ideas Laura is looking for:
If you live/work in Preston and own some kind of camera then you can join in!
