Other People Photographs: The Making of a Very Public Artwork

November 2014

This November Strange Cargo launched Other People’s Photographs: The Making of a Very Public Artwork, the definitive book of the permanent public art installation comprising personal photographs of family and friends in the streets of Folkestone, Cheriton and Sandgate. Along with photographs from all of the now distinctive signs that have come to characterise the streets of the area, the full-colour book reveals many more of the images that were donated by the public, amounting to over 740 photographs accompanied by the stories behind the images for the very first time. Beautifully printed in A4 landscape format with a foreword by Brett Rogers, director of the Photographers’ Gallery in London, the book begins with the most recent colour snaps running chronologically back in time as far as the 1800s, capturing the collective experiences that unify us through the generations.

Other People’s Photographs is for sale via Strange Cargo, Waterstones in folkestone and on ebay for the price of £25.00. Please call 01303 244533 or email info@strangecargo.org.uk for further enquiries.
