|Outhouse presents: People in Glass Houses by Leila Romaya.
Preview, 4.30 - 6.30pm Friday 7 April 2006. Linksview Community Centre, 102 Vale Road, Woolton, L25
People in Glass Houses is a collection of portraits taken by Leila Romaya during her month-long residency in Woolton.
Romaya’s work captures local groups and individuals in-situ, using the glass structure as a backdrop
for the one hundred new portraits, including a Tai Chi class, a local primary school, card playing enthusiasts and construction workers.
For two months the Outhouse itself will host two of Leila's portraits as transparent vinyl layers. Visible from the exterior of the structure, the portraits will live through and reflect the changing of season. For further information contact The Guinness Trust on 0151 428 9755. The Guinness Trust is a registered social landlord and manages Linksview and the High Rise Estate in Woolton. www.wooltonouthouse.co.uk.
