Snappers looked east to shine the spotlight on a corner of the city.

Photography exhibition Nooks and Corners of Sunderland focuses on the east area of Sunderland and showcases some of its unique qualities.

It’s the brainchild of North East Community Solutions (NECS) CIC, which supports ethnic minorities living in the area.

The exhibition will go on show from September 4 at Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, and is the final part of the group’s Green Inclusion project.

Over a number of weeks, residents have taken part in guided tours and walks to raise awareness of nature and green spaces in the east area.

Daniel Krzyszczak, executive director of NECS CIC, said: “Our exhibition is a great opportunity to show Sunderland as an exciting and a welcoming city for all. It is also an opportunity for people from east Sunderland to be proud of where they live.”

Speaking about the work of the group, he said: “Our approach is to work with the local community to utilise its assets and meet its needs. We do it through a range of approaches such as: delivering services, creating projects and organising events.

“We particularly have experience of working with black and minority ethnic communities in Sunderland and other areas within the North East.”

l Nooks and Corners of Sunderland is on display at the Museum and Winter Gardens from September 4 until October 4.
