HELP NEEDED! @ Photographers’ gallery

Stop Press! Were you (or anybody you know) born in any of the following African countries?

Benin
Central African Republic
Djibouti
Equatorial Guinea
Guinea-Bissau
Madagascar
Malawi
Niger
Sao Tome and Principe
Swaziland

If so, and you fancy having your portrait taken as part of a photography project called The World in London, get in touch with the Photographers’ Gallery. The project aims to include portraits of Londoners born in each of the 204 nations competing in London’s 2012 Olympic Games, and will be presented at an outdoor exhibition to coincide with next year’s festivities. A bit gimmicky, perhaps, but they’ve enlisted the help of over 200 UK and international photographers and, with a potential 204 fellow sitters, it should be a fun project to be involved with.

You can find a full list of the 38 nations still on the wanted list on the website. (Nauru has a population of just under 10,000! I really hope they find someone…)

To make yourself known to the Photographers’ Gallery and get involved, email them: portrait.commission@photonet.org.uk
