‘Unclaimed’ Photographs at the International


This is a fascinating exhibition in the International in Slater Street. Artistically the photos are nothing special but its interesting, very few people in the pictures will ever know they are on display and includes weddings, holidays and parties. You can make up your own stories.

The Photographs were rescued from a skip on Wood Street, when the Samson Camera Shop closed down earlier this year, and go as far back as the 1930’s (people getting reprints of family photos) all the way through the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, upto recently.

This fascinating collection of photos provides an amazing insight into the lives of local people, their holidays, celebrations and day-to-day sights through a very personal documentary format.

The exhibition is open to the public weekday afternoons in August from 3 to 6pm, people are invited to come and hunt for familiar faces and places in the photographs.

The exhibition will culminate in a closing event where visitors will be invited back and have opportunity to take photos away with them.  Date of closing event still to be confirmed but should be the final weekend in August.
