Faces of Frome

Faces of Frome is an ongoing project documenting the diversity of the people of Frome in partnership with The Frome Independent market.

Permanent residents and those visiting this vibrant community are invited to take part. The photographs form part of a living archive, added to with each edition of Photo|Frome festival, building a unique record of the community. In 2022, we ran  a ‘pop-up’ outdoor studio on July market day. Photographs were taken by BA students from Boomsatsuma College, Bristol. Students of Frome College handled the consent forms.

In 2023, the ‘pop-up’ studio will take place on Sunday, 2 July outside of the Frome Library during market hours. Again, students from Boomsatsuma and Frome College will be managing the event.

Sitters all receive a free digital copy of their portrait whether or not they give consent to the use of their photo in the archive.

Want to take part? Join us Sunday 2 July, 2023 10:00 – 15:00 at the FREE ‘pop-up’ studio by Frome Library.

During the 2023 festival, photographs from 2022 will be exhibited at the Frome Heritage Museum.
