Inverness Victorian Market & Academy Street Heritage Photography Project

Andrew

This month I took part in two heritage projects here in Inverness, to record parts of the city, namely Inverness Victorian Market and Academy Street.

These are part of a community engagement programme to generate digital content for a mobile website or app focused on Academy Street. This, in turn, is part of an overarching project to regenerate Academy Street.

The first project was to re-create old photographs of Academy Street, to document how things have changed. So we took photos from as close as possible to the original spot at a similar focal length (to try to recreate the same image); we also presented a modern take on the image and then made the image look old/aged like the original.

Below are four of those pictures. My reproductions, taken in June 2017, on the top row, the originals below. This is followed by a gallery of the other photographs I took around Academy Street, which in turn is followed by a gallery of images of the Victorian Market here in Inverness: Read More →
