19 February – 19 April 2024

Right Up Our Street, Doncaster’s community-led Creative People and Places arts programme funded by Arts Council England, has committed to delivering a three-year programme of work within the Balby Bridge estate to get to know the community on a deeper level.

Photographer Jamie Bubb is the first artist appointed to the area for this residency. During 2023, Jamie spent time connecting with the residents and photographing individuals to share their story and creativity. The exhibition features sitters from six community groups based on the estate.

Sitters were given the opportunity to customise their portrait with coloured lighting and some chose to take their own image with the use of a remote control. Everybody was encouraged to bring something to their photoshoot that they felt says something about them; a precious, important, meaningful object used to help tell their story without words.

The photographs in this exhibition are the result of the kindness and energy of the people who live, work or have a connection with the Balby Bridge estate in Doncaster.

Faces of Balby Bridge will be exhibited at The Point from 19 February – 19 April 2024.
