This gallery discloses our visual journey in Macclesfield: photography and film.
Street photography genre enables to show how the image accompanies us on a daily basis. Rather than creating any coherent picture of the town, the purpose is to present how the images create stories on their own: we are curious what they show that the words could not capture. In that, we explore how the images interact with other senses and how they make us understand better what make people feel safe and unsafe in their everyday lives. Images have become our daily companion in the research in field.
Windows generate an invitation, as well as the barrier to the reality of the everyday. This often invisible yet very present companion to our daily life allows us a glimpse of the interior spaces, yet also distortions our view of the outside. Not only are they tools to see and feel, but also to influence the way in which one perceives its surroundings.
We are thankful to two generous photographers who kindly contributed their work to this project in its previous and current version:
