Chapeltown Community Nursery is a not for profit organisation led by local parents and passionate about championing our locality, fostering good community relations and promoting learning through play. We are delighted to be working with a local professional photographer, Jonathan Turner, to create a time-limited online exhibition of our community with support from Leeds Inspired.
With this photography project, we are inspired by the local history of portrait taking by photographers like Gerald Donne and as demonstrated in the recent exhibitions of Eulogy and Back to Life by the Jamaica Society. Everyone who wants to take part just needs to book a slot on the day and then will be given the opportunity to make a studio self-portrait using a camera wireless trigger during our ‘pose-and-play’ sessions.
If you want to you will be able to view your images on a laptop and choose an image for print – although you are not required to pay anything to take part we are encouraging a suggested donation of £2.50 to cover the costs of development and we will also ask for your consent for your picture to be part of an exhibition of our wider community.
