Salt: The Launch

Yesterday we were very excited to attend the launch for the Salt of Southend-on-Sea book and exhibition!

The book features twenty four interviews with people who live and work in Southend, along with their diverse portraits and local imagery, which Matt has photographed over the past year.

The launch event gave us the opportunity to thank all involved and see them presented with a copy of the book, as well as displaying 33 of the images taken for the project on a larger scale.
With fish and chips supplied by Oldhams, It was a really great turn out, and a fantastic chance to catch up with our friends from Grow Co and Southend Council.

We will be showcasing more of the photography from the book, and pictures taken specially for the council over the coming weeks, but if you get the chance, go and have a look at the exhibition which runs until Thursday 17th August at the Beecroft Art Gallery in Southend.

Below are some of the images captured from the launch.
