Thursday 3rd February 6 - 9pm & Saturday 5th February 11am - 4pm
Brixton Photo Booth is a contemporary restaging of Harry Jacobs' famous photographic studio. Throughout the 1950s, Jacobs took a series of photographs of newly arrived immigrants living in South London, capturing a unique moment in British history, the advent of multiculturalism.
To celebrate the importance of Jacobs' documentary work to London's history, we are recreating his studio in Brixton Village Market. We would like to invite you to be photographed. The photographs will be displayed at Brixton Library from 11th - 14th February, then donated to the Lambeth Archives, as well as shown online.
Brixton Photo Booth is a project organised by X Presents, an artist-led non-profit organisation whose initiatives are based on values of collectivism. We are a group of artists who collaboratively realise artistic and educational projects to engage a wide audience & support creative graduates.
For this project we are working with students from the University of the Creative Arts.
Brixton Photo Booth is kindly sponsored by Ideas Tap.
