Gallery showcases 'human camera'
Lindsay Seers' work
Seers uses her own mouth as the camera receptor
An artist who uses her body as a camera is exhibiting her work at a Blackpool gallery from this weekend.

Lindsay Seers' collection, which is based on the Lancashire resort's entertainment industry, is on show at the Grundy Art Gallery in Queen Street.

Her work features the Grand Theatre and other tourist attractions, such as the once popular Midget Town.

Seers takes pictures using her mouth as the camera receptor - her lips acting as the shutter and aperture.

Images taken in this way are red from the light that passes through the blood of her cheeks, framed by her teeth and blurred by her body.

Cllr David Owen, Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure, said: "We are very pleased to be holding such a unique and fascinating exhibition featuring artwork specifically created for Blackpool.

"The work on display draws upon some interesting events from the town's vivacious and long-standing entertainment history."
