Photography Acts Online Project

Leap Then Look

PhotographyActs is a series of four creative invitations to explore the possibilities of photography as an active process of creation and discovery. Each week in October 2020 we invited an online audience to respond to the weekly invitation and post the results on Instagram.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that took part and for all of your amazing responses, you're thoughtfulness and imagination. Here is a selection from the hundred of images created during the project. To see all of the images search #photographyacts on instagram.

The collective

Leap Then Look is a collaboration between British artists Lucy Cran and Bill Leslie. Together we create artworks, participatory projects, workshops, and events for people of all ages and abilities. Our aim is to inspire playfulness, inquisitiveness, and experimentation, using unconventional multi-disciplinary approaches, including object making, performance, installation, film, and photography. We believe that contemporary art practice should and can be a positive force in people’s lives and that we can all benefit from engaging with new ways of looking, making, and thinking.
