Sides of the city you don’t normally see have been captured by 200 disposable cameras.Advertisement
The project by the Foxton Centre saw the cameras given to a mix of age ranges from children to pensioners.
More than 3,000 images were printed and whittled down to 180 pictures by a panel of nine judges.
The public are now asked to select their 10 favourite photos during the exhibition in Dice and Donuts cafe in Butler Street, and Blog Preston has been given a selection of 10 to feature below.
Paul Thurlwell from the We Are Here project said: “The project has fulfilled the basic right of all citizens, irrespective of age, gender, race, wealth, ability, social position, religion or political affiliations, to access the tools and skills through which they can find strength in their own voice and represent themselves.
“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, particularly in the fast paced modern day where video and social media dominate.”
The exhibition on the first floor of the cafe runs until Monday 11 July.
