A Preston photography project is capturing the county and is looking for your photographs – old and new.
Relative Strangers is a new photographic collective, working with Lancashire Archives, featuring work from photographers, amateurs and enthusiasts.
The project, set up by photographer Alyssa Gilbert, isĀ the first of its kind to come to the Lancashire.
Preston College lecturer, Alyssa, was inspired to start the project after wanting to give Lancashire portraits more of a purpose.
“I feel that we are a fragmented society and by capturing the lives of people and events in the area, we can reconnect to one another whilst keeping the archives alive.
You could be playing a part in Lancashire's history.
