Calling all oil expats in Aderdeen and Aberdeenshire: would you like to be professionally photographed and feature in an exhibition?
Would you like to be photographed by a professional fine art photographer, and interviewed on themes similar to the questionnaire on the experience of de-locating and re-locating available on this website? Would you be tempted to be photographed by a professional artist towards an art and community exhibition currently prepared by the University of Aberdeen: ‘Home Truths: Workers and Families on the Move in the Oil Community’? The photoshoot will also involve a filmed interview, if you are agreeable.
Please feel free to just sign up for the photoshoot or fill in the questionnaire – it is up to you how much you want to get involved! And please spread the word and help us collect data for this exciting project, which is organised by the University of Aberdeen and complies with its standards of ethics. Let me know if you are interested, and please direct all enquiries and questionnaires to me, at firstname.lastname@example.org .Thanks.
For the photoshoot and any interview, we can come to your home, or another location of your choosing. If you can think of a significant object which you always take with you when relocating, we would appreciate the chance to photograph it, too. Your family could contribute as well, if they wish and with your consent (a consent form will be available). If interested, please let me know which option you would select:
- I wish to take part at a time and in a location of my choosing, over the weekend of May 16th-17th.
- I wish to take part, but a weekday would be easier.
All participants are very warmly invited alongside your family to the exhibition ‘Home Truths’ (29 May-26 June, Events Area, Ground Floor, Sir Duncan Rice Library, King’s College campus, University of Aberdeen) and to its launch, on May 28th, 2015 at 5pm. Please let me know if you:
- Will attend.
- Will attend with family.
