Photographs and recordings of people from Leominster talking about their experiences of growing up, living and working in the town and surrounding area of North Herefordshire.
Grange Court commissioned me to produce an exhibition of portrait photographs and audio recordings of Leominster people.
21 local people from various backgrounds who have lived or worked in Leominster during their lifetime were photographed and interviewed. A 90 minute audio piece that features all 21 people was extracted and edited from the original 20 hours of recorded interviews.
Their individual stories are presented in a looping recording, together with some musical accompaniment provided by one of the contributors.
The portrait photographs provide an authenticity and a visual clue to the voices that you can hear. This work aims to capture the essence and character of the town and its people within the context of Leominster’s social heritage.
