Royal Wedding Day kicks off with ‘people’s album’ of snaps
The world’s biggest wedding album goes ‘on line’ next week—on the Big Day of the Royal Wedding.
Each photograph submitted is being displayed by the decade it was taken, from the mid-19th century onward when photography was invented.
The idea comes from East London’s inter-generation Magic Me arts organisation which runs projects to bring young and older generations together.
The charity’s HQ in Bethnal Green is teaming up with the Photographer’s Gallery in the West End to launch oldnewborrowedblue, an online album for people to upload their snaps with an accompanying story, which will run from April 29—when William and Kate tie the knot—till the end of the summer.
The ‘largest wedding album on the planet’ will reflect the role photography has played in documenting weddings over the past 150 years and be a visual record of some of the traditions that have become integral to the Big Day.
