The People’s Picture is a photography and design studio that creates photo mosaic artworks and installations for public and private clients across the world. Each artwork is assembled from thousands of photos yet every single one tells a story. With many years of experience we bring people together to celebrate their legacy and create iconic works of art. Our portfolio includes commissions for the Kennedy Space Center, The National Memorial Arboretum, Royal College of Surgeons, BBC Television, Tate Britain, The Photographers’ Gallery, Financial Times and Canary Wharf Group.
