The Face of Stoke-on-Trent - Together we make the city

The Face of Stoke-on-Trent - The People's Picture

Together we make the City

Pop-up Exhibition: 4th May 2018 until September 2018
People from across the city are to be featured in five pop-up exhibitions as ’The Face of SOT on Tour’.

‘The Face of SOT’ is a giant art installation in the city centre, created from 3,550 photographs to reveal the iconic face of 23-year-old Jozef Clark. Jozef’s face was chosen to represent the city, as a young person in the here and now, facing forward on his journey.

The People’s Picture – run by award-winning artist Helen Marshall – was commissioned by SOT City Council to create the artwork, working alongside local arts organisation B Arts.


A giant photo mosaic by The People’s Picture commissioned to back the bid for UK City of Culture 2021.


View and zoom into the final photo mosaic, see the exhibition and read the stories behind some of the faces.


We collected a staggering 3,550 photos during the campaign. Meet the photographers, find out more.
