Since September 2014, Hastings Pier Charity’s Education and Learning team has been working in partnership with Horizons Community Learning CIC to deliver an archive research and photography project.
15 participants researched past images of the Pier in Hastings Library and the Museum before working with local photographer John Cole to take contemporary photos of the same views. The participants then used the Photoshop software at Sussex Coast College to edit the images. The final images went on display in the Pier Hub in a 4-week exhibition called ‘Then and Now’. The images will also become part of the Digital Memory on display in The Deck.
