Hundreds of disposable cameras are being given out across Preston for a new photography competition.Advertisement
The WeAreHere project aims to give everyone from bankers to rough sleepers the same access to taking photos.
Cameras can be picked up from the Foxton Centre, PaSCoe in Winckley Square and the Dice and Donuts cafe.
All pictures taken are to be featured in a public exhibition at the Diece and Donuts cafe, followed by a further exhibition of selected photos at The Foxton Festival in August.

Trustee of the project, Paul Thurlwell, said: “The idea behind using disposable cameras is that it democratises photography and gives the same forum for representation whether you are a banker, a child, or a rough sleeper.
“Through the project and community involvement we are hoping to bring about a closer community in Preston.”
More information on the project can be found on the We Are Here website.
