This was brought to my attention via our Facebook page – thought it might be of interest to some members.
London Mozart Players are running a photographic project called 100 Faces of Croydon.
Details from the website:
100 Faces of Croydon is an exciting new project for Croydon’s year as London Borough of Culture. This immersive project will showcase the portraits and places of 100 local people to celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of Croydon’s population.
This project is linked to LMP’s “Mozart: The Mixtape” concert on Saturday 10 February 2024. On the night, the 100 portraits will be projected onto a large screen in Fairfield Halls’ concert hall while the project participants (people being photographed, I assume?) take part in a collaborative performance involving 100 metronomes.
LMP are looking for up to 30 photographers to take part in this project. Successful photographers will be required to attend a portrait photography masterclass and project briefing on Saturday 11 November with our Artistic Partner, award-winning Estonian photographer Kaupo Kikkas. The masterclass will introduce the project in more depth and help you to develop your skills as a portrait photographer.
After attending the masterclass, you will be matched up with three or four Croydon residents who have applied to take part in the project and have their portrait taken. LMP will coordinate the time and location of these photoshoots, which will take place from mid-November to Christmas. Someone from our team will accompany you on the photoshoot to interview our ‘100 Faces’ about their involvement in the project. You will take two photographs of your subjects in their chosen location: a black and white head-and shoulders portrait, followed by a colour portrait which places them in their wider environment, and which will tell a story about some aspect of what Croydon means to them.
Your photographic portraits will be projected onto a large screen as part of LMP’s Mozart: The Mixtape concert on Saturday 10 February at Fairfield Halls and included in a digital exhibition.
The deadline for applications is 9am, Monday 23 October 2023.
