Roman Road Stories

Due to the national lockdown announced on 31 October, this exhibition has been postponed until further notice.

Join our mailing list to keep in the loop. 

See Roman Road transformed into a public photography exhibition! 

Four Corners recently ran an open call for photographs documenting community and culture on Roman Road. Talented photographers sent in an array of images, from classic street photography to archive prints and contemporary portraiture.

Now, 14 local businesses have been invited to select their favourite photograph for display in their shop windows. Shown together, they will create an outdoor exhibition along the road. 

The coronavirus pandemic has reminded us all of the value of our local community. At a time of isolation, film and photography can bring us together.

Collect a map from Four Corners and take to the streets to explore this exhibition of street photography. Support your local businesses, discover neighbourhood photographers and celebrate the people and places that make Roman Road.
