ABOUT THE display

As part of Autograph’s exhibition Sasha Huber: YOU NAME IT, we invited the public to  join the conversation by sending us their images responding to the theme ‘Becoming Monumental’. We received over 200 brilliant responses, and shared the judges' favourites in a new online gallery.

We're now taking eight of the photographs submitted to Old Street, a few minutes walk from Autograph's gallery. They will be broadcast six metres high on the Old Street Digital Canvas, located at one of London's busiest roundabouts.

Part of the exhibition

Sasha Huber:
