Sawston is a village near Cambridge that has had a long history of cinema. A cinema was opened there in the early 1930s by local firm Spicers and operated until the 1970s, but a new project involving Sawston community college, The Cambridge Film Trust and stART has reopened the cinema.
Cambridge filmmaker Peter Harmer has been documenting the project and brought me in to take a series of portraits that will be used in the book accompanying his film. The portraits cover the whole range of people involved in the project, including local residents who used to work at or visit the cinema, school children involved in the project and of course the project organisers.
Here's a selection of images from the shoot.
