The Stories We Chose To Tell – Exhibition (DUPLICATE)

The Stories We Chose To Tell – Exhibition (DUPLICATE)

An exciting photography exhibition developed through a collaboration between award-winning documentary photographer Rich Wiles and eight young people from Rotherham.

The young participants set out with disposable cameras to produce images exploring elements of their own lives and identity, which will be presented alongside a series of collaborative portraits in which Wiles pressed his camera's shutter release but the context and locations again came from the young participants.

All participants chose which aspects of their lives to present through this work. They also selected their own final images and have added text layers to further amplify their voices.

Opening Times:

  • Monday, Thursday - 8.30am to 7pm
  • Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday - 8:30am to 5:30pm
  • Saturday - 9am to 4pm

Riverside Gallery, Riverside House, Rotherham

Free Admission

Seven of the young people who took part in the project were also supported in achieving their Bronze Arts Award, a nationally-recognised qualification, by the Early Help team and Children’s Capital of Culture.
