Colchester 24: The Great Colchester Photo Shoot 2011

Between noon 21st October to noon 22nd October 2011, 181 people of Colchester took
photos of their lives and the lives of others within the Borough of Colchester. This exhibition
offers a chance to see one photo by every photographer who took part, from school
children to old age pensioners, amateur to professional, jovial to serious. The aim was to
celebrate the rich diversity of life in a modern English town in the early twenty-first century.
The exhibition is accompanied by a slide show of 500 images from the total of over 5000
submitted – a random selection showing the range of life in our town, plus pictures from
the previous photo-shoot of Colchester in 1986, when around 50 photographers took part,
shooting on film.

Colchester 24 runs from the 9th May to 26th May 2012 at Slack Space, Victoria Place, Eld
Lane, Colchester and will be open Wednesday to Saturday from 11.00am-6.00pm.
