My Perspective project restarts this Autumn

Photo taken by Graham Scutter, previous participant.

We're delighted to have just launched one of our most popular public projects, My Perspective. 

The project challenges adults to take 1 photo a day over a 28 day period. 

You don't need to have any formal photography experience and you don't need to own a fancy camera, simply bring whatever you have (phone cameras included) to our Introduction to Photography workshop before embarking on the challenge. You'll be supported through a series of weekly coffee mornings which are a great opportunity to share your photos from the week and socialise with other participants, you can also use it as a time to get feedback and share camera issues. At the end of the project all 28 photos are collated into a special exhibition and displayed. 

The exhibition showcases the photographers sets of images and aims to celebrate the joy of the everyday. The group work with photographer and illustrator Simon Jardine as a mentor.

This project is offered for free as a part of our Ageing Creatively programme but you do need to book as spaces are limited.
