Get snapping on first day of spring to be part of Home in Bridport exhibition
11:16am Friday 14th March 2014 in News
A BRIDPORT project hopes to capture a moment in time – noon on the first day of spring to be precise.
The call has gone out for as many people as possible to take a photograph wherever they are on March 21.
The photographs will form part of the Home in Bridport exhibition in May.
Home in Bridport is a self-documentation project which will be exhibiting art, film and photography created by a cross section of people who live in and around the town.
The project is the brainchild of photographer Robert Golden.
He said: “You can photograph a friend or loved one, preferably showing where they are in the frame, or the market, an event, a picture of the food you are eating, the building you love the most, etc.
“We will assume you have permission to photograph what you chose to send in. This is not about professional images but rather good snaps recording a moment in time.”
Jem Main of Dorset Visual Arts is helping to curate the exhibition and with Mr Golden and the Home team, will make a selection of the photographs, create a series of collages with each photographer credited. Everyone whose photograph is included will be invited to the opening of the exhibition on May 15 at 6pm.
The exhibition, at the Bridport Arts Centre from May 15-30, is a celebration of the creativity of the town and of the 40th anniversary of the art centre’s presence in the town.
Photographs should be sent with captions to say what and where it is and with a name and email address.
They should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 31.
