Documenting Litherland Changes Photography Exhibition

In this post I will be displaying the link to a video walk through of the Litherland Changes Photography exhibition; and a number of images of the layout and my chosen method of displaying the prints.
The link below is a link to a video walk through of my exhibition, from the gate and entrance to the building through the exhibition and finishing at the refreshements and comment book table; I also had a table that had a book I project on the same subject in my second year of the course.
Please excuse the noises in the background of the video, I was not able to shoot this video at a quiet time as the park ranges and members of the bowls club were in the next room, having meetings.
You may want to watch the video without sound, as a member of the public who knows me says, 'hello Sarah' at the end quite loudly

These are the flyers that I produced and handed out before the exhibition, I posted around 300 flyers, giving a number of them to Crosby Library and two nursing homes in the area; Queen Elizabeth Court, and Delph Court in Litherland.

Below are images of my exhibition space, and then the way in which I decided to layout the partition boards that my prints were to be displayed on.


These images show how I hung my exhibition prints; I decided to use dress makers pin to support the images to the partition boards.

Here are some photographs of the signage and publicity that was used for my exhibiton. These posters and signs were placed around the park on railings and also on one partition board that was facing the entrance to the building.

I took a selection of photographs of the details of my layout, including a table that featured a book that I produced around the subject of Litherland and Bootle, another of Liverpools suburbs, in the second year in the documentary city module.

Lastly, below are some images of my exhibition in its entirety, with all of my images hung. I have also put the link to the images that I chose to exhibit, these images were edited and were the exact images that I sent to print.

Final Image Links:
(The images qere too big to upload them straight onto this blog)

I am very happy with the outcome and execution of my exhibition, I received a lot of encouraging and supportive feedback which is present in what people have writen in the comments book that I provided.
I managed to take some photographs of the people that came to my exhibition viewing the work; I would like to thank those who came to the exhibition.

Litherland Changes Photography Exhibition

On the 19th and 20th of March 2011, I displayed a selection of images that I was kindly given by Crosby Library local history archive, along side my own work in which I have taken a photograph of the same scenes that appear in the archives images as they are today.
I feel that this exhibition went very well and recieved a lot of constructive and encouraging feedback from the people who came and viewed the exhibition. There was a good turn out and and I am very thankful to anyone who came and gave their support.
Within the next few days I intend to upload the images that were displayed in the exhibition, images of the layout of the space used, and also a walk through video of the exhibition.

Litherland Exhibition...

For my final major project I decided to continue with and develop my Litherland project. I have produced a series of 8 of my own images, and was kindly given another 8 by Andrew Lee-Hart, the Sefton Councils local history archavist; the archive is situated within Crosby Library, Liverpool. Within my 8 images I have gone to the same places that are photographed within the archives images, and I have photographed these places as they are today.

To get the widest range of exposure for my images, I approached the rangers of Hatton Hill Park and asked if it would be possible for me to hold an exhibition in which I would show both the archives images, and my own.

The exhibiton will be help in Hatton Hill Park's Pavilion in Litherland, Liverpool. On Saturday the 19th and 20th of March 2011 between 10 am and 4 pm.
