About the Book
As part of the centenary of the Thwaites Empire Theatre Blackburn for 2010 some of the longest serving volunteers and original founding staff are the focus within this book of portraits.
Six selected prints from the complete body of work are framed and hung on the walls of the complex hopefully for the next 100 years.
This book is a tribute to the volunteers.
I strip back my photographic portraiture to the bare essentials; light, my camera and my subject. This approach requires a trust between me and my sitter...the resulting intimacy is a hallmark of my work. With a BA(Hons) first class Degree in Photographic Media I produce fine art projects, exhibition work, commercial portraits and weddings whilst being strongly devoted to personal analogue work. view my WEDDING work here http://helenaikman.smoothfolio.com view my FINE ART work here http://helenaikman.artworkfolio.com view my COMMERCIAL site here http://www.helenaikman.co.uk
