The Great Brixton Project is appealing for residents to send in their photographs of Brixton.
The project is creating a photobook which will “showcase the Brixton we know and love”.
It will document the changing face of the area and capture the “living history” of the community.
The project was started by The Champion Agency, a creative agency and social enterprise that champions young talent.
“This is an open invitation to everyone to join us in telling the story of Brixton and what makes it so special,” says Scott Leonard, director of The Champion Agency.
“We might not be able to change the change, but we can document it before it changes beyond recognition.”
The first edition will be printed this summer and will be published on a non-profit basis.
To play your part in the Great Brixton Project, and see your photos in print, send your favourite Brixton photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org, including a caption of up to 140 characters saying what the photo is of and why it’s special to you.
If you have physical photographs, you can send them to: The Great Brixton Project, Piano Club, Piano House, 9 Brighton Terrace, Brixton SW9 8DJ.
All images featured in the publication will be fully credited and remain the property of the owner. Your images will be treated with the utmost care, and will not be used for commercial gain.
The closing date is June 30, 2015.
You can follow the progress of the project on Facebook or Twitter.
The project is supported by the Brixton Bugle, the Black Cultural Archives, Photofusion and Brixton Buzz.
