Framing Marks Gate

Posted on Jul 4, 2014 by in Blog | 0 comments

During my time on Marks Gate so far, I have come across and met such interesting people with a remarkable set of stories, skills and creativity that it has most certainly been an eye opener! This has inspired me to launch a smaller project titled ‘Framing Marks Gate’ during my residency.

‘Framing Marks Gate’ will tell the stories of these local residents that I have met through the medium of photography and film. I intend to ‘frame’ local people with their stories or art as featured in the picture. These photos will be collated in a book and form part of an exhibition. There is also an intention to create a series of 5 one minute shorts telling these stories using film and animation.

The project kicks off with a photo studio set up at the Marks Gate Community Centre on Tuesday 29th July at 12-4pm.  So if you have a story to tell, why not pop in on a Tea Time Tuesday at the centre to book a slot in the photo studio, or drop me an email on

Looking forward to sharing the stories and photos!
