Acton Notebook has launched a W3 Doorstep Portraits Project to capture photos of Acton residents during Covid-19.
Over the next few weeks local photographers will be snapping residents outside their homes or at their windows.
Photographs will be used for an online exhibition
Over the coming weeks the photos will be uploaded to FB page W3 Doorstep Photo Gallery. A number of local photographers are taking part in the exhibition including Yaffa Meskell, Hanson Leatherby Chloe Campbell, and Damian Griffiths, Sophie Ziegler, Carla Costa, Candace Moses, James Clarke, Tara Holt, Reena Silva, Bella Thorpe Woods and Nick Constantinou. Residents will be notified about shoots through flyers and the ACSG Street WhatsApp Groups. If your street doesn’t have a WhatsApp group contact us through the FB group to be put you in touch with a local photographer. If you are a local photographer, and interested in taking part, please get in touch here.
When we are finally out of lockdown we are hoping to launch a LIVE exhibition.
The exhibition will be a tour and will take place in multiple venues across the neighbourhood. We are currently looking for businesses and public spaces with walls that could host a gallery and a local sponsor to cover printing and framing costs. Local business owners who would like to take part either as a venue or a sponsor please contact us for more information.
