Welcome to Landscape / Portrait
On this site, you can record a self-portrait telling us what you think about where and how you live.
You can also look at the portraits that other people have created from across the North East.
This site allows you to compare these self-portraits with the stereotypes that already exist for each UK post-code area.
Landscape/Portrait is collaboration between lead artist Kevin Carter and artists/writers/community professionals and art organisations around the UK. So far this has include; SCAN, Forma Arts & Media , Media19, Karin Coetzee, Diane Humphries, Tony White, Craig Gilbert and Steve Lewis. The project has been staged across the North East of England as part of the Dott Festival at the Baltic and in Bournemouth; as part of the Digital Transformation project hosted by SCAN. Future collaboration are planned in Liverpool, Manchester and Fife and we are always interested to collaborate with new partners.
