We are excited to announce that all of the images have now been taken for Stepping Into The Past photographic project. We have created this in collaboration with Hebden Royd Town Council, using original photographs from Pennine Horizons and re creating them in the present day. The original images were taken 100 years ago of local people in Hebden Royd, we have then re created them in the exact location the photographs were taken. This is to commemorate 100 years since the Battle of the Somme. Local residents and local businesses have got involved and volunteered to pose in to photographs, some in rather wet conditions! The participants were encouraged to imagine the person they were posing as. If a man, maybe the man had to go to war not long after the image was taken, the children may have been missing their fathers, the women were concerned for their husbands, fathers or sons. War has an impact on everyone, soldiers and families alike. A huge thank you to everyone who got involved, please come and see the exhibition and if you have time join, Jamie for the walk around some of the locations. Please see the poster below for more details.
Here are just a few of the images that will be exhibited on Saturday.
