Following the launch event at Aedas on the 26th of January, we realised that some people did not make it (underground strike, we assume) and so, Morley kindly offered to create a pop-up studio in central London to reach out to those people as well as others who may not have been able to join us due to other commitments. During the evening, as well as finding out the latest in the project
The pop-up studio, at the Saint Gobain Innovation Centre in Fitzrovia, will open its doors at 17:00 but Morley and his team will be taking photos from 16:00
The portraits will be for your personal use but also, should you agree to be part of the project, they will be used to illustrate the digital part of the project. (Please note that time and budget permitted, it is Morley’s intention to eventually photograph participants in their everyday context, site/office)
To those who have applied to be part of "The image of Women in the Construction Industry" project:
Thank you very much for expressing an interest in our project and volunteering to become part of it.

The project has received such a positive response that we are both humbled and excited in equal measure by the prospect of working with each one of you in order to reframe the image of our industry.
