Brighton & Hove Photographic CollectionDetails about the project
For many years, people have contacted us about photographs; they've wanted QueenSpark to find them, archive them, identify them, or publish them - and in most cases we've had to say 'no', as we've had neither the physical space, nor the expertise, to do so.
However, two years ago we decided that we had to do something, and sought the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund to enable us to create a 'people's photographic history' of Brighton & Hove - one that everybody can see, and to which everybody can contribute.
The Brighton & Hove Photographic Collection was launched on 20 October 2011 at a packed event at the Old Courtroom. Here you can see Peter Chrisp with one of the photographs in the book that he donated to the collection.
