Rescue Geography

Exploring Eastside with mobile technologies

Photographic installation by Dan Burwood

Everyone interviewed for the Rescue Geography project was offered the opportunity to have their portrait taken by Dan for the end of project exhibition which took place 24-31 October 2008.  The idea was to place the portraits in the landscape of the area.  The photos combine individual and location so as to reflect on the way we construct memories and place.

Photographs of Eastside

We've put some photos of Eastside onto a map of the area.  If you have Google Earth you can also look at a collection of photos along with quotes from our interviewees describing the area.
