1000 Faces Complete!

The Faces project is a unique collection of portraits of people in E17, celebrating the local area and the rich diversity of people who live, work and visit here. The pictures are all taken locally, mainly in the square or shopping mall. Everyone is asked their permission before being photographed and children are only included with parents present.

After 18 month's work, all the portraits for the 1000 Faces of Walthamstow have now been taken. The portraits are being exhibited in the Town Square from Mon Aug 7 to Sun Aug 13. All 1000 will be shown together, each at A4 size, making a wall of images 120 foot long and 6 foot high. There will be live DJs each evening between 6 and 8pm. Everyone who has been photographed for the project is invited to come to the square on Fri Aug 11th at 7pm, to have a chance to meet the other participants, celebrate the project, and share a glass of wine or soft drink. The 1000 portraits are now on the website. If your picture is one of them, many thanks. I look forward to seeing you at the August exhbition.

Exhibition Dates: Mon Aug 7 to Sun Aug 13
Exhibition Times: 10am to 8pm
Venue: Walthamstow Town Square
Nearest tube: The town square is 5 min walk from Walthamstow Central (Victoria Line)
