Fylde creatives came together to view social documentary style photos taken by local photographer, Dawn Mander.
Dawn has had work shown around the world, but the Blackpool-born creative said the resort is the ideal place to photograph.
She said: “The light on the promenade and piers make these a perfect place for photography but I prefer the centre of Blackpool away from crowds.”
Dawn has a background in dance and theatre, which helped her come up with the name ‘Stagefright’ for her exhibition.
And she is co-curator of HIVEArts, a gallery on Church Street that showcases local grassroots artists.
Dawn added: “I’m inspired by the human condition and the frantic pace of people in the street. I love the candid opportunities street and documentary photography gives me but there are so many traditional coastal subjects in Blackpool it’s easy to find a subject that’s just a little bit different.”
'Stagefright- A retrospective by Dawn Mander' runs until the 5th September at Tea Amantes, Albert Road, and is open to the public free of charge and without need to book an appointment.
