Reunions – Peterborough Museum & Art Gallery, 13 January – 23 March

Street photographer Chris Porsz’s unique reunion photographs, where he recreates candid pictures of amazing characters he took decades ago, are on display from 13 January at Peterborough Museum & Art Gallery in a wonderfully nostalgic, unique and moving exhibition, Reunions.

Whether you have a love for photography or just want the opportunity to see a unique set of images, then this exhibition is a must-see! This type of photographic documentary has never been done before. What makes it more special is that most of his pictures feature Peterborough people and iconic locations in the city including, Peterborough train station, Bridge Street and Cathedral Square.

Many of Chris’ characters featured in his pictures were complete strangers and through painstaking detective work and chance encounters, spanning over 40 years, Prorsz was able to track down many of the same people. Subsequently, he recreated the same picture, in the same location, and has now captured over 300 beautiful reunions of friends, families and lovers, some who hadn’t seen each other for years!

The stories that feature alongside the reunion pictures detail the characters’ lives since the original photo was taken, helping visitors to connect with the pictures and the people within them, and highlighting how the passage of time affects us all.

Plus, on top of all that Peterborough’s popular street artist Nathan Murdoch, of Street Hire Ltd, has also created a very special mural at the entrance to the exhibition… but you’ll just have to wait until opening day to see it!

Visit Reunions, open 13 January – 23 March, and enjoy free entry into this fascinating exhibition. Peterborough Museum is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 4pm, plan your visit today: peterboroughmuseum.org.uk/plan-your-visit
