The Unidentified Project

Why stop now?! Even though our exhibition Unidentified is over and done with, there are still some names missing from the faces. We will be posting these portraits one at a time on our Facebook Page and continuing the quest to identify their subjects. We will also be giving you all the information and stories we have gathered so far.
So spread the word - “Do you recognise anyone?”
