Church Street Crew: Blackburn Mini Residency

Young people and community members of all ages dropped in the shop to take part in the portable photographic studio where by arranging the lighting and themselves they could take self-portraits. We explored lightening techniques and the work of other photographers. Final portraits were down loaded onto a laptop and printed out. Participants took images away and others got involved in arranging a suitable display space and mounting the photographs. Along side the images of the people from Blackburn were written messages along the theme “ a text message from Blackburn”
