Nearly 200 pictures taken on disposable cameras in Preston are to be shown at a city cafe.

The exhibition for the Our City, Your City project saw 200 cameras handed out to anyone who wanted to take part.

More than 3,000 images were submitted and the judging panel has now whittled down to a selected showing the diversity of the city.

Dice and Donuts in Butler Street is hosting the pictures, where the public can vote for their favourite 10 photographs.

Paul Thurlwell from the Foxton Centre said: “The exhibition showcases the work of the photographers. The combination of the viewer’s own experiences and the choices made in taking the photograph have allowed the unique perspective of the photographer to shine through and will hopefully create a space for communication and discussion, regardless of the extent to which someone can engage on a technical level.

“The dual nature of photography as a tool to record fact and as a creative art form, and the power of the still image to communicate and leave a lasting impression whilst shedding light on and raising awareness of important social issues cannot be underestimated in a fast paced modern day where video and social media dominate.”

The pictures are on display from Wednesday 15 June to Monday 11 July.

The most popular pictures are to be enlarged and showcased at The Foxton Festival, at the Foxton Centre, on Monday 8 August.
