Relative Strangers is a photographic collective featuring work from new and emerging photographers in collaboration with the Lancashire Archives.
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, is the first of its kind to come to the Lancashire.
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.
“This is a project that everyone can get involved with, whether it is professional photographers or someone with an interest in the area.”
The archive collection will be featured on the website
and will be available to see during the touring exhibition next year.
The group are also preparing a series of portrait days, where Alyssa and the team hope to take photos for the archive.
Photographs from the portraiture days will be turned into typologies and submitted into the Lancashire Archives.
You can get involved with the project by sharing your pictures on Twitter and using the hashtag #Lancsarchive or tagging @relativephoto
