Photographer Quentin Budworth has teamed up with the people of Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire for a cinematic adventure by recreating over 130 iconic films, all shot in the city of Hull.
Budworth explained: “It started with a simple notion and a play on words: What if Hull was really Hollywood and the people of Hull were film stars? We’d have our own Hollywood but in Hull… Hullywood!
“I wanted to create a project and body of work that involved the people of Hull as participants and collaborators in a playful way whilst allowing me to create photographs that people would enjoy looking at and engage with.”
The photographer told BuzzFeed News: “Participants are asked to choose their Hollywood character, film, moment, and Hull location. A meet-up is arranged and the photograph is then published on the HullywoodIcons.com website, which publishes a new icon every day on its blog, Twitter, and Facebook.”
The art project Hullywood Icons will be exhibited throughout the city as projections in January. Budworth is planning to shoot a further 200 film recreations.
