- public art + people
- can art change the way people feel about their community?
- can public art be something that is already there?
- can public art make people feel safer?
other people's photographs
Other People’s Photographs celebrates the networks that create our communities, and what it means to share public space emotionally and physically. Memory and context transform it from simply an open space to a shared place.
Connected by similar memories and experiences, we are united by our childhood games, our rites of passage, our birthdays, weddings and funerals, and our celebration of national and international events.
Launched in February 2008 by Brett Rogers, Director of the Photographers’ Gallery in London, the artwork has won six major national and international awards. Other People's Photographs is an unusual and unique project that won awards specifically because it considered every one of Folkestone’s streets `public space’, not just the town centre and parks. Aspects of Other People's Photographs were exhibited at Georges House.
