Let By: Me

Over the past couple of months I have been taking portrait photographs for Alice Cunningham‘s artwork Let By: Me as part of Festival Stoke. The artwork is a series of portraits of Stoke people (Stoke is one of the six towns of Stoke-on-Trent), along with passages from interviews with them and sound pieces available through an 0800 phone number.  They were printed onto signs the size of ‘To Let’ and ‘For Sale’ signs which litter our cities and towns, then hung on houses, shops and businesses or placed on poles in gardens, an alternative to the negativity. If you want to come and see them, there is an art trail around Stoke where these and other Festival Stoke art-works feature throughout July. There is also a very fine series of workshops being run at Art Stop. The official opening is today! #festivalstoke

These photographs I took are of Alice mounting some the show last Friday.
