Space to Create! today is inspired by the work of Grace Lau from our current exhibition, Seaside: Photographed. Make your own fantastical photographic studio using old photos, magazines and paper to collage your dream backdrop for your photo shoot with family, friends or celebrities. . Thanks to @hannahs_days for sharing this fantastic collage inspired by Grace Lau’s ‘21st Century Types’ series. Lau made 400 portraits of local people in Hastings in 2005, then brought props from second hand shops and set them up to look like a Victorian photography studio. . Check out the Seaside: Photographed exhibition film and downloadable resources for schools and families on our website for more inspiration. .
