@gbphd and Robert Parkinson here on an #OEGtakeover for the week, taking you through some of our images from 'As and When', a Culture Shifts project in Runcorn and Widnes. The work here is on show at Open Eye Gallery as part of Culture Shifts: Local, open until 22nd December Another part of our project was to maintain sustained engagement, visual or otherwise, with our two groups. One way we did this was to ask our collaborators to visualise their own space. Disposable cameras were useful here as they're not over complicated, inexpensive and largely discreet. Moreover, they do not require and 'outsider input' in terms of photographic direction. It's something that can be taken away and used or not, in their own time, should they wish. As a tool it helped to extend the conversation and enable us as project leaders to see more of their everyday lives. Private space and activities outside of our formal meetings were suddenly open for discussion. In total we got back over 500 images to build ideas from. We documented this process as a useful means of project reflection. Here's a pic based on connecting themes to space, barriers and movement #culturalshift #participatory #photography
