Last remaining days to see Becque á Barbe at CCA Galleries International / by Martin Toft

'On a linguistic level the project is exploring the space between the formal, etymological and vernacular use of Jèrriais. Photography as a medium is mute and the challenge is to photograph, what essentially is a spoken language’.

Last remaining days to see exhibition Becque á Barbe / Face to Face CCA Galleries International, 10 Hill Street, St Helier, Jersey. 23 May - 12 June.

Featured today in Islands of the Mind and recently in  Jersey Evening Post.

All framed photographs are for sale and money raised will help to support the project to continue in its endeavour to make 100 portraits of Jersey’s native speakers. So far thirteen portraits have been made and the long-term plan is for the project to be made into a published book. All portraits will enter the Photo-Archive Societe-Jersiaise for future research and public enjoyment.
