Family snaps shown as street art
Black and white photo in window at night
The artist said her project generated "extraordinary stories"
Households on a street in Brighton are displaying photos of their family members as part of an art exhibition.

The enlarged images, which have been placed across windows in Tidy Street as part of Brighton Photo Fringe, glow when lights are switched on after dark.

Artist Lisa Creagh, who instigated the project, wanted to tell the stories of the people who live in the houses.

"Every home has a different world and hopefully the pictures are an illustration of that," she said.

The project is expected to last for three weeks.

Ms Creagh added: "The most extraordinary stories seem to exist on this one street and probably on every street."

Sarah Wright, one of the street's residents, said it was "quite overpowering" to have a picture of herself in her window from 20 years ago.
