London based artist duo FrenchMottershead spent 6 months as artists in residence in Soho. The resulting series, Over the Threshold, provides a unique insight into the lives of Soho inhabitants. Working collaboratively FrenchMottershead photographed groups of residents in their homes, using movement, clothing and props to create eleven narrative works.
Each work explores an aspect of Soho life - from the challenges of urban gardening, to the joy of being able to walk everywhere.
Over the Threshold was initially shown in a pop up gallery in May 2011. It can be seen on The Photographers’ Gallery’s hoardings, at 16 – 18 Ramillies Street, during Summer 2011. There is also a limited edition publication available from the online shop.
