East Enders urged to dig out their old snaps for exhibition
EAST Enders should put aside any shame about mullets, afros, and Mohawks they were once proud of and wipe the dust off their old picture albums for a photographic event.
From birthdays and weddings to everyday scenes of home life, Autograph ABP wants to have a nosy through your former glory days.
Organisers of the event, being held from 12pm to 5pm at Rivington Place, Shoreditch on Saturday (October 23), are hoping to put together an exhibition of photos from Londoners with culturally diverse backgrounds.
Any old snaps they dig out will become part of a growing archive which can be viewed through an online image bank.
Kicking off in the East End, the exhibition will then visit other locations across the country to expand the archive.
Professionals will make digital copies of any snaps, so owners don’t have to part with them.
The team are after an eclectic mix of photos, including front rooms, tea parties, family life, school portraits and personal records of demonstrations and politics among other events.
