THE PEOPLES PICTURE
The People’s Picture is a photography and design studio from British artist Helen Marshall. Every artwork is made up of thousands of photos yet every single one tells a story.
As an artist led studio practice we create innovative photo artworks and installations at the leading edge of design and technology. Pictures are powerful. People connect with pictures. People share their memories, dreams and celebrate through pictures.
We are experts in visual storytelling, digital photo mosaics and bringing communities together to create, celebrate and own their unique legacy.
