Bermudians to feature in art piece
Top British photographer Alistair Morrison is to return to Bermuda to focus on people who have made a difference to the island.
Mr Morrison, whose grandparents moved to Bermuda in the 1930s and whose mother still lives here, said the photographic project would also help him to learn more about his own heritage.
The photographer, who has shot portraits of stars like Tom Cruise, Sir Elton John, Dame Judi Dench and Bruce Springsteen, aims to get 13 Bermudians on camera for a piece called Bermudian Legacy, with two of the subjects chosen by public vote.
The project is a collaboration between Mr Morrison, British Airways and the Hamilton Princess Hotel, where the finished work will be displayed.
Mr Morrison’s grandparents moved to the island in the 1930s and had four children in Bermuda.
Mr Morrison said: “My mother and uncle, along with a number of other members of my family still live here, so this beautiful island is very much a part of my heritage and where I spent many summers with my family.
“When British Airways first suggested the idea to me back in January, I was instantly intrigued and am delighted to see it come to fruition.”
Mr Morrison has previously tackled several other “Legacy Photograph” projects which featured famous actors, sportsmen and musicians.
The photographer has already selected 11 subjects for the project but the public can nominate others who “have contributed greatly to the strength of the Bermuda community”.
Nominations can be made online at Mr Morrison’s website, alistairmorrison.com/bermudian-legacy until June 15.
Written nominations can be submitted to Bermudian Legacy, PO Box HM 2969, Hamilton, HM MX. Each entrant can make up to three nominations and must specify why they should be included.
