Washing Lines – Portraits of Dennistoun

Washing Lines is a photography project taking place in Dennistoun over the next two months and is looking for participants.

The project is looking to meet residents from all walks of life to have discussions, and to take their portrait with their washing line. If you live in Dennistoun they would love to hear from you. It is aiming toward a snapshot of a changing Dennistoun to explore issues of identity, community and belonging by taking portraits of residents of Dennistoun.

The project wants to capture a snapshot of modern Dennistoun to examine the changing nature of the area. The plan is to look at the role of everyday washing lines in the context of a modern community and use them as the backdrop to the photography. The project takes inspiration from the rich history of the area, the changing culture, and Dennistoun’s colourful personality. Work will take place collaboratively with participants to produce images that reflect their story.

The final images will be exhibited together in Whitehill Laundry on Whitehill Street from May 1st 2015.
