Portrait is a social photographic storytelling project, capturing emotive photographs of people living in Norfolk & along the East Anglian Coast.
Our communities are full of amazing individuals, with great stories to tell and enlightening views on life or their journey to the region.
From the 24th August until 7th September, Portrait will be shown at the charming Skippings Gallery in historic Great Yarmouth – Situated on Kings Street (just along from St Georges Theatre) this grade II listed building has been lovingly restored and is a great exhibition venue.
Open from 11am-4pm (Wed-Saturday) 24th August – 7th September 2019
A little about the project
The assignment began in 2019 and aims to continue for the foreseeable future, creating an enlightening and informative body of photographic images, documenting the area and the people that live here. Celebrating the rich and varied heritage of the region, as well as the exciting developments to commerce and communities that are underway.
The first part of the photographic project is an exhibition at Skippings Gallery in Great Yarmouth. Featuring more than 30 individuals, photographed throughout the region in 2019.
The collection of images features people from all sectors of the community and is accompanied by 200-300 words on each individual.
Over the next three years, the body of work will continue to flourish, enabling the continued development of the online portfolio.
After the exhibition, an online portfolio of portraits will be available to view. This will continue to develop as the project builds.
