Picturing High Streets was a three-year project delivered by Photoworks to create a contemporary picture of England’s high streets through artist residencies and a public call out. It was part of the High Streets Heritage Action Zones Cultural Programme, and produced in partnership with GRAIN Projects, Impressions Gallery, Open Eye Gallery, London College of Communications, Photofusion, QUAD/FORMAT, Redeye, ReFramed and The Photographers’ Gallery. Six artists, selected via open call, undertook residencies at six high street locations across England facilitated by regional photography organisations.  Tim Mills (Coventry, GRAIN Projects), Natalie Willatt (Stoke-on-Trent, GRAIN Projects), Suzanne St Clare (Chester, Open Eye Gallery), Tony Mallon (Prescot, Open Eye Gallery), Rehan Jamil (Tower Hamlets, London, Photofusion) and Khatun (Leicester, Quad/FORMAT) each used a socially-engaged approach, working alongside local communities to co-create a contemporary portrait of these English high streets between 2021 and 2024.
