PROJECT15

 
Project15 was an initiative to all Midland’s photographers, whether they be a professional, student, keen amateur or lecturer, 
to participate and be inspired by the rich history of photography in the region.With Project15, we hoped to inspire a new generation of
photographers to produce a new volume of work that highlights the richness of talent in the Midlands.
 
The aim was for entrants to produce a selection of up to 5 images - these images can be on the themes of people, places, and objects and can be shot in any style genre  –
documentary, fine art, advertising, editorial, portraiture or fashion etc.
 
These images were then submitted to an independent panel of renowned judges for possible inclusion in the major exhibition, which was part of Frame15 – in October 2015.
The exhibition included a retrospective of our inspirational photographers and the best of your responses.
 
The judges were: Ray Fitchett - Sigma, John Bigglestone FRSA (Member Director of AoP and Chief Examiner C&G Europe), Dr Michael Pritchard FRPS - Director General of the Royal Photographic Society. More to be annouced shorty.
 
The work was produced between March and September 2015 . 
 
 
 
Project15 is in part a retrospective of 3 great Birmingham/Midland practitioners who have profoundly influenced the development and
growth of commercial photography in the region and will not only act as retrospective to these great practitioners but also hopefully act as a
launch pad to new emerging talent who will be exhibited alongside them :
 
- Dennis Constantine - a social and portrait photographer who ran his own profoundly success practice in Harborne (and also a studio in Harrods Department store) 
for over 40 years. His clientele included the Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Imeda Marcos, Thai Royal Family, and many other famous individuals.
 
- Peter Moss - an advertising and industrial photographer who ran the largest photography practice in the West Midland for over 40 years and photographed a
whole era of Midlands industrial heritage and development.
 
- Pete Donnelly - a renowned and highly awarded documentary photographer who recorded the decline of industrial production and social change in the Black
Country during the 60s and 70s. He was also a highly talented creative director and was a senior partner of the successful design and photography practice
Donnelly Burns Nicklin.
