Earlier this year you may have noticed a collection of black and white photographic portraits installed on hoarding along Faraday Road and opposite the new Athlone Gate. This was the result of a project entitled ‘Friends & Neighbours’ documenting photographically the variety of people who have come into contact with Portobello Square during Phase 1 and who have been instrumental in the project’s success.
Photographed by David Hares, the collection of over 50 black and white portraits were photographed in a reportage style and feature portraits of existing residents, private buyers, local business owners, staff from Catalyst, Ardmore and Venture Centre, estate agents and branding and marketing representatives.
The hoarding has been a great success and offers a focal point for residents. Next time you are nearby see if you can spot any recognizable faces.
