Community Photography

I visited a fantastic Youth and Community project yesterday on an Estate that has been through a lot of re-generation work and change. The community centre had had a complete re-build and included a dedicated youth room, meeting rooms, a shop and a community hall.
Around the walls were photos of members of the community young and old. The pictures, which looked fantastic, were the results of a great piece of work photographing key members of the community … and also recording some of the locations that would dissapear in the re-generation work. The photographs were all done by a professional photographer and produced on canvas frames.
I thought this was a fantastic piece of work in recognising key characters of the estate young and old, the conversations and stories that the piece of work produced AND the sense of ownership it created in the community centre.
