ALTERNATIVE HERITAGE PLAQUES – DRUNK ANIMAL CREATIVE STUDIO

This blog post is dedicated to Hull and Drunk Animal Creative Studio – both close to my heart.

Drunk Animal Creative Studio had an idea and they brought it to life – we all know not all ideas see daylight, so the fact that this idea brought Hull into spotlight across UK once more, is absolutely AMAZING!

Hull is a city filled with people… and occasionally those people do things. Some of those things are kind of interesting. Some are pretty funny too. Others are actually quite impressive, and others… well, they’re just weird.
The thing is, we think each of these stories is equally important. They are what makes Hull the city it is today. The weird, the wonderful, the obscure, the fascinating stories and facts that permeate every street and every community in the city are now celebrated through our Alternative Heritage plaques.

Alternative Heritage Plaques was on my radar before I was actually asked to take photographs of them officially. I was interested in its predicted momentum and the hype it created.
And knowing the personality and characteristics of Hull, I was sure that the plaques won’t disappoint.

The story started with a list of plaques spread across Hull – from Orchid Park to Brough [not in Hull really, but the drive there was fantastic].

Legends like Rony Pickering and his moment of fame, the famous pedestrian crossing down Castle Street where poor Clare nearly died waiting for the green man and, former Chip Spice Factory, Hull dialect and Croggy. Some plaques stood long and strong, some where half-taken down and taken, some covered in mud and some admired by seagulls and pigeons.

Can you already see that the paragraph above makes you smirk a bit?
I captured all plaques displayed at the time, two new arrivals where photographed last month and the very, very new one is still to be found.

It was one of a kind job to be asked to do and one reason why I love working with people like Drunk Animal Creative Studio.
