As a part of ‘The Stranger’s Tale’ I did two radio interviews for Radio Humberside and managed to get Cecil’s sony ‘My Yorkshire’ home a track recorded specially for the project played on both of them. I also did a piece for the Hull Daily Mail. The circulation of the Hull Daily Mail is about 40, 000 papers per day with a larger reach online.
Here is the feedback from the public to the exhibition from the visitors book:
There has been a lot of activity to promote the show on Facebook and Twitter which has seen a very positive to the project. I am pleased to say that there was no trolling.

Jerome Whittingham commissioned Michelle Dee to write a review of the exhibition for the Humbercare website http://www.humberhelp.co.uk/features/features/the-strangers-tale.html
Fortuitously the exhibition coincided with The Humber Mouth Literature festival which was also hosted mainly at the Central Library. I asked Humber Mouth poet for hire Tim Siddall writes about ‘The Stranger’s Tale’ this is what he said:
Here’s a picture of Tim at work
In addition to the opening event I was asked by Anna Bean photography lecturer at Hull School of Art and Design to talk to her third year students. After viewing the work we had a lively discussion about the work and the role of photography as art within a social context. Photographs by Anna Bean.
