Photo Stories

Working with award-winning photograpgher Christian Sinibaldi, we have been out taking portraits of people in the Eastern part of Northampton, often referred to as the Eastern District. 

You can view these as part of a brand new exhibition at Northampton Museum & Art Gallery from Saturday 27 November until Friday 17 December 2021.

There are over 230 portraits capturing 190 people across the Eastern District with their own voices and stories. The photographs will be accompanied by audio recordings and captions will be designed in a multimedia exhibition with a 3-wall projected design in the Museum’s Main Hall. You can see some of the portaits below!

We are delighted that Christian’s portrait ‘Uncle and Auntie’ has been selected for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize Exhibition 2021.

The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize is one of the most prestigious photography awards in the world, celebrating the very best in contemporary portrait photography.

This year the exhibition will take place at the new arts hub Cromwell Place, London, until 2 January 2022, while the National Portrait Gallery building in St Martin’s Place is closed until 2023 for major redevelopment works.

Thanks to this photography project and to the incredible support of local creatives, I managed to meet, talk and photograph over 190 people. Each person we met dedicated some of their time and shared with us a bit of their personal journey.

It’s simply fascinating how many people made Northampton their new home over the last 50 years - all attracted by similar promises and all looking for a new home. With a very open and honest approach we talked to the people of Northampton, mainly in the Eastern District and unveiled an incredible array of stories, many quite similar on the way they started and of course, very different on the way they developed. Only thing in common for sure: Northampton has become the place they call home and the place where many have grown their families and careers.
