In his latest project, photographer and long time North Bristol Artist (NBA), Paul Bullivant, is aiming to meet and photograph in portrait style all of the now more than 100 members. After 12 months he has met nearly one third of his target, photographing his fellow artists at home, in their studios, in their gardens and sometimes on the street. With an ever changing membership, this project is unlikely to be fully completed but Paul hopes that this archive, recording the work and personalities of his fellow artists, may one day become an exhibition and a book, perhaps celebrating the fast approaching 20th anniversary of the founding of ‘the trail’.
Paul’s first subject, NBA’s Chair Mary Collett, is enthusiastic about the project:
“Paul’s project is a unique record of an unusual and diverse range of talented people who contribute so much to the local community and to Bristol. Our trail, along with the many others that now take place across the city, is a part of what makes Bristol a great city, buzzing with creative ideas, interesting events and exciting opportunities.”
