A photo project celebrating “stories of hope” from the NHS is being screened at London’s Piccadilly Circus.
Launching on Monday, more than 12,000 photos and stories have been collected for the project from key workers, carers, patients and NHS staff, which will be displayed at the central London location.
The interactive mosaic art project was created by Helen Marshall of The People’s Picture, who has previously produced photo mosaics celebrating the Queen Diamond Jubilee and the 100th anniversary of British women getting the right to vote.
“I particularly wanted the NHS staff, key workers and carers’ stories to be highlighted.
“By collecting thousands of photos, videos and stories, I have created one giant interactive rainbow mosaic during my time in lockdown.”
Martin Machray, joint chief nurse for the NHS in London, said: “This is an inclusive and safe way for the nation to connect and thank our NHS, key workers and carers through art.
“It’s wonderful to have so many images and people represented; each an individual story of hope and testament to this important moment in history.”
