Different Storeys

Photographic participatory project with Butetown residents
Exhibition of photographic prints at CMC@Loudoun Square, 2012

Different Storeys is a photographic participatory project involving staff and residents from Loudoun and Nelson House. The project helped inform the visual direction for Axis and sought to capture and share people’s views from the tower blocks, both the visual views from their windows and their views of what it is like to live there.

The idea for Different Storeys developed out of visits to Loudoun House to undertake the tests shots for the photographic commission Axis. The project culminated in an exhibition of photographs shot using single use film cameras, showing some of the residents’ views of Cardiff and the surrounding area. Quotes taken from conversations and observations shared during this time complement the images and give a personal perspective on what the view and Tiger Bay means to each person.
