However these photographs weren't going to be taken at a distance using a long lens. Instead we were going to ask strangers to pose for our pictures.
We then had to choose one of our images which was sent for printing on A3 card, before we embarked on the 2nd part of the challenge. A flashmob human gallery! We would walk around the city, and when a whistle was blown we would display our images to a bemused public. A minute or two latter the whistle would blow again, the images hidden and everyone dispersed back into the crowd. After walking a short distance the process was to be repeated.
To finish off the year I have a couple of photographs (which have both appeared in two previous exhibitions) on display from Saturday 4th December 2010 to Saturday 18th December 2010 at Marple Library, Memorial Park, Marple, SK6 6BA.
This is part of an exhibition of 33 photographs by members of Stockport Photographic Society.
Once the display is over I don't plan to include these photographs in any future exhibitions.
It has been running for a while now, but I hadn't yet posted about the 118th Annual Photographic Exhibition at Stockport Art Gallery.
