Newcastle upon Tyne Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The project I an attempt to show several things. Celebrate The inclusivity and diversity of Newcastle, Increasing awareness of Hidden illnesses including Mental health and other physical problems. But also raising awareness of social problems in Newcastle. It is a project that I started in 2019 but lockdowns and my own mental health has increased the time it has taken. Each photo is a Cyanotype this removes personal status from the photo eg makeup, jewelry etc this taking a step toward every photo being equal I wish to finish this project and display it with an Audio voiceover describing the current status of the above.

  • Display in a comunity venue
  • Rase public awareness of inclusivity and divercity etc
  • Show historic photo technoque

Why it's a great idea:

Steps to get it done:
