AN award-winning photographer is recruiting people from the North-East to take part in a social experiment to capture the lives and times of Newcastle in exactly 24 hours.

Mark Waugh, whose work has been recognised at the Press Photographer of the Year awards, is asking photography lovers from hobbyists, amateurs and professionals to help capture a day in the life of Newcastle.

On Saturday March 23, volunteers will gather together for a free workshop with Mr Waugh before heading out to capture the sights.

The social experiment - called A Day In The Life - will collate the day's images to be printed out and transformed into a piece of art representing a famous Newcastle icon.

This will be the fifth edition of the campaign, which previously visited Bristol, Manchester, Glasgow, and Liverpool.

Mark Waugh said: “It will be great to see Newcastle’s culture and the people of the North East become a part of the campaign. Newcastle is full of opportunities, energy and has plenty of history attached to it.

"There will be so much to capture within the 24 hours from the vibrant nightlife to the new and old architecture, I can’t wait to get going.

“Anyone and everyone is welcome to get involved in the project, whether you just want to bring your phone along and take a few snaps or bring along your high res cameras.

"Each image paints its own picture and all will be commemorated into a unique finalised piece of art to remember the day.”
