People are at the core of each project. People share their memories, dreams and celebrate through pictures. At the People’s Picture, each photo mosaic comprises thousands of photos that represents each and every individual, telling a story that unites us as a whole.
We believe that working in a person centred way brings out the community as a whole, and our team of creatives aim in every project is to deliver inclusive and exciting artworks that bring people together.
Thousands of photos are collected to create each artwork, with each one having its own personal story. We pride ourselves on our visual storytelling, and our dedicated team use a range of ways to collect, collate, and share each of these stories to create a truly unique, collaborative artwork.
Thousands of photos are collected
- Via online campaigns where people can share and upload
- Delivering workshops where photos are captured or old photos from the past are scanned
- Working with established archives and collections of photos of days gone by
We were thrilled that over 25,000 people were able to view the artwork.Rochester Cathedral Spokesperson
Every picture tells a story
Stories en masse can form one strong message. The People’s Picture are experts at combining thousands of images to tell this message, as well as curating alongside a selection of short stories to create engagement.

With more than 300 memorials set in 150 acres, the Arboretum is a wonderful, visual tribute to those who have served and continue to serve our nation. It is, however, people and their memories and associations that make the Arboretum such a special place. It is this that we hope to convey through this poignant exhibit, which will tell thousands of stories.Sarah Montgomery

The Mona Lisa artwork you created has been such a success with our people. We have added it to a book that explains our new strategy.Martha Brown
Since its installation overnight on November 15, the positive response to the artwork has been huge, shared and liked thousands of times on social media. It has been an honour for Network Rail to host the ‘Face of Suffrage’, and for Birmingham New Street station to become the canvas for a piece of public art which has captivated countless people.Karen Hornby
