An outdoor photography exhibition in Mansfield, celebrating the people and places of Ashfield, Bolsover, Mansfield and North East Derbyshire, PORTRAIT was the first major commission of the First Art programme.
A stunning installation was then created with Portuguese producers, Procur.arte. Images were displayed on their innovative lightbox exhibition system – the first time it had been in the UK – turning Mansfield Market Place into a spectacular outdoor gallery, visible by day and night.
The installation was shown in Mansfield for three weeks during April and May 2015.
