10 to 10 Community Photo Shoot Day by IC Visual Lab
1:00 to 22:00 58 Old Market Street Bristol 19 September
An award winning photography graduate from the UWE Bristol is leading a free public event inviting people to help archive the Old Market area of Bristol.
On 19 September amateur and professional photographers are invited to join in the 10 to 10 Community Shoot Day organised by IC-Visual Lab in collaboration with One Giant Arm.
Ibolya Feher was runner up in the Guardian Student Media Awards Student Photographer of the Year Award and has won the South West Graduate Photography Prize. Since leaving UWE Bristol with co-founder Alejandro Acin she has set up a Community Interest company called IC-Visual Lab CIC that was helped as a start up with a UWE Bristol UnLtd Better Together Award.
Iboyla explains, “Our 10 to 10: Community Photo-Shootevent aims to bring together and actively engage the local community in a fun activity using photography. You don't need to be a brilliant photographer to take part - the event is designed to encourage locals and the wider Bristol community to explore and document the Old Market Quarter and create a live photo archive.
“We will provide photography brief and a map of the area we want to archive that can be picked up from our office in Old Market. People can also come to have their portrait taken for the archive and bring along their old photos of Old Market to be digitalised.”
10 to 10 will include a Community Photo-shoot where everybody can come along and take a photograph of the area and upload it to the live archive, a mobile portrait studio by professional photographer Kirsty Mackay and a service to digitise old photographs and family albums that relate to the Old Market area by Alejandro Acin.
Now based in Bristol, Kirsty Mackay works by making portraits of the passerby on the street. She is concerned with the subtle and everyday personal accessories and nuances used by people that so precisely reflect our society and identify our times. She was an early adopter of mobile phone photography resulting in iCapture, a project documenting a year of her life.
