Doorstep Arts - Exhibition Launch

I'm Caroline, one half of Huckleberry Films and I write the blogs - as well as doing lots of other things! I've been working on a photography project for the Civic Arts Centre in Oswaldtwistle... and today was finally the day for the exhibition to launch.
I displayed 16 photographs, and shared the exhibition space with artist Cath Ford. We both worked with a single street in Oswaldtwistle, as part of a wider project for 'Doorstep Arts', funded by the Health Lottery.
Cath worked with Milton St to explore ideas of 'home', decorate mugs, and make tiny houses... and ran a fridge magnet making workshop at the event. I worked with residents from nearby Haworth St, knocking on doors and chatting to the residents, asking them if I could take their photos.
Lots of the people I photographed came to the event which was brilliant, and we got lots of positive feedback about the project. It was great to see people's faces as they recognised themselves and their families in the photos, and chat with them about the photos.
