Supporting Portrait Youth’s LGBT+ Photography Project
Jack Arts are delighted to be supporting Portrait Youth; a long-term project led by fashion researchers from Manchester Metropolitan University that explores the identities of diverse groups of young people through styling and dress.
The latest series of portraits have been produced in collaboration with LGBT+ youth charity The Proud Trust, an organisation that helps empower young people to make a positive change for themselves and their communities. During a workshop, led by photographer Heather Glazzard, participants explored how their favourite items of clothing reflected their personalities and identities.
We reproduced the resulting photographic series as large 4-sheet posters for maximum street-level impact on Aytoun Street, transforming the space into an urban gallery just in time for Pride. The powerful portraits look brilliant in this format, and we are so happy to be involved with showcasing this important project.
