It startet with a crazy idea. My friend, Peter Westphael, should promote the world's biggest Theatre Festival for kids, running in my hometown Randers in April. We discussed making a photo exhibition with portraits of kids.
One word took another and suddenly we were planning, what we believe is, the worlds biggest portrait exhibition, showing almost 13000 unique portraits of kids from the town Randers.
In a period of three weeks in January, five local photographers have visited all schools and institutions in Randers making one portrait of every kid.
In the end it adds up to nearly 13000 portraits.
It's taken a lot of time, a lot of planning, but on Friday the 4th of March we'll open the outdoor exhibition. The portraits will be projekted on a big monument called Red Fall, by the artist Cronhammer. The show will go on every night in the following three weeks.
The pictures can also be seen on the website, Børn i centrum. Here it's possible (only for the relatives) to order a print of the portraits. The price, d.kr. 20, goes to UNICEF.
