Walls Have Voices

Exploring the ‘off the beaten track’ built heritage of Blackpool for a new book

About Walls Have Voices

Walls Have Voices is an anthology of specially commissioned new writing by local Blackpool writers created through a series of site-specific writing workshops exploring the ‘off the beaten track’ built heritage of the town.

The writers visited the Grundy Art Gallery, Central Library, the Grand Theatre and Layton Cemetery with their mentors Eleanor Rees and Zoe Lambert and took part in writing tasks that ignited imaginative reactions to place, explored how we can apply language to the physical environment to see it anew and how society thinks about the value of public space.

The photography brief set by Blackpool Council was to shoot a series of “atmospheric, black and white photographs of the Grundy Art Gallery, Central Library, the Grand Theatre and Layton Cemetery to illustrate a new publication of creative writings inspired by the four places”.

With two weeks to deliver the photography, I visited each location a number of times to ensure a range of options for the book designer.

Here you can view fourteen photographs from the series including a selection of images of the limited edition book.

“Yannick’s photographs complement the writing perfectly. They make the publication very special and different. They are beautifully composed and produced and add the feeling of atmosphere and mystery which we wanted. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Yannick.”
