Community Exhibition

Unmasked

3 October 2022 - 8 February 2023

Alice Ellen Cooper Dean Community Space

Unmasked is a local independent project that began in the dark days of March 2020, when a new disease called COVID-19 literally stopped the world as we knew it.

The project was inspired by the fact that, to fight this invisible enemy, our healthcare heroes had made themselves invisible, too, in a way.

At the heart of the enterprise is a series of portraits by photographer Andy Scaysbrook, which reveals and celebrates faces on the front line in Dorset.

Together with journalist Emma Pittard and graphic designer John Nesbitt, Andy shines a light on many of the men and women behind the masks.
