Nene Park project
FROM September 16th 2013 an exhibition of 135 photographs by Chris Porsz will be mounted at Roman Point, Ferry Meadows country park in Peterborough. The exhibition is part of the Nene Park Trust's 25th anniversary celebrations and features photographs of visitors to the park between summer 2012 and summer 2013. Don't miss it!
Chris loves organising and shooting reunions. If you have appeared in any of Chris Porsz's photographs, he would love to hear from you. Use the contact page (click).
He is especially interested in recreating old group photos, like the one above. Chris will use this page to ask for your help to track down members of groups who have lost contact with each other, so please visit this page regularly to see the latest reunion appeals. I have completed twenty reunions now but I am always looking out for more as they are very special to me.
Out now and it is available from the Visitors Information centre, Art in the Heart shop and Waterstones all in Bridge St Peterborough.

My six week photography exhibition in the city museum art gallery was extremely popular and drew over fifteen thousand visitors.
NINE CITY INSPIRATIONAL TOUR OF 2011.
On my days off from being a paramedic and with the approval of the long suffering Mrs P I embarked on a nine city tour seeking inspiration. I felt I needed to take more images outside Peterborough and the cities included London, Brighton, Norwich, Leicester, Nottingham, Birmingham, Leeds, Sheffield and York.
I adopt the great New York photographer Dave Beckerman's philosophy. 'Street photography is 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration.' On these train day trips I walked for miles over many hours. I took hundreds but only a few made my website as I want you to see only the best. Look out in the Other Locations galleries where I posted my favourites.
2012 CITY TOUR.
Recently inspired by Oxford, Newcastle, Liverpool, Manchester and Blackpool. (seasides are great for street photography) so see the fruits of my labours under Other Locations. Check out my October Paris trip where my friend and great photographer Valerie Jardin very kindly invited me to help out on her photo workshop. I only had three days but I walked for miles and see the results in my Paris section.
2013. My year recording the life of Nene Park left me little time but I managed to squeeze in the day job, my local streets, London, Berlin, Amsterdam and the amazing Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
2014 . To be inspired and get the creative juices flowing I visited London many times, Prague, Brussels, Rome, Budapest, Barcelona ,Dublin and back to my roots in Warsaw. I was pleasantly surprised to hear Luton airport are using some of these images on their walk ways in a five year long exhibition. I am busy on my next book two which will be dedicated to my then and now reunion pictures.
As for my dream of a book on street photography ' New England' was published on December 8 th 2012. It is hardback and contains around a hundred and seventy of my favourite pictures from the late seventies and early eighties. Doing well with Tate Modern and the V&A stocking it in their bookshops. Price £15. 99 including postage in the UK. Thank you so much Dominic of http://www.piersanddominic.com/ who has turned my dream into reality. Also many thanks to Martyn of http://www.northlightmedia.co.uk/ who created this beautiful website. They have been so generous with their time and I am immensely grateful.
2015. Got off to a good start with many of my images appearing in a five year installation at London Luton airport. Vienna and Copenhagen were wonderful and do check out my take on these amazing cities. Over a period of five months and with unique access I recorded everyday life in Peterborough City Hospital. See the results in my Peterborough galleries.
2016. My dream is to publish book two which will be dedicated to my reunion of characters thirty years on. Watch this space.
