Hillfields Photographic Studio Set To Go Large At Coventry Cathedral This Weekend

Photo MinersLocal history will be going large in Coventry Cathedral when images from a Hillfields photographic studio are projected onto a huge cinema-style screen. Photographic repurposers Photo Miners, who were behind last month’s critically-acclaimed Masterji exhibition at FarGo Village, took to the BBC Coventry and Warwickshire airwaves earlier this year to in a bid to unearth portraits taken at the Tayler Brothers Studio beween 1900 and 1970. The newly-digitalised results will get their big-screen debut on the Cathedral’s west wall next weekend.

But the project, funded by Arts Council England and Coventry City Council, doesn’t end there. The next stage will see the public given the chance to use the images as a springboard to sharing their own Coventry stories. An interactive app already available on the Photo Miners’ website enables users to ‘sequence images to tell a story that evokes Coventry’s past’. The group is also offering free Tayler Brothers local history workshops, using the app, to local schools and community organisations.

For more information on exact timings, see the Photo Miners website and/or @PhotoMiners Twitter feed.
