For 2010 project Threads, photographer Nadia Bettega explores portraiture and place with young people from Brent Youth Inclusion Programme.
Young people from Brent Youth Inclusion Programme set out from their local Underground station Neasden to join photographer Nadia Bettega on a week-long journey to explore portraiture and place through photography. Together they visited significant places in Brent, located along the Jubilee line, including Wembley Park station and Wembley Stadium.
Everyone kept a daily journal in which they developed their ideas about the different people who might work at or visit each location. Building upon this, each participant then ‘acted out’ their own imaginary character in front of the camera and Bettega recorded their reflections on the day.Visit the Project Page
