AN ARTIST and photographer is looking for Newham schools and community groups who would like to be part of a world record.
Clare Newton is aiming to break the record for the largest photograph by capturing thousands of people in mid-jump in the five Olympic host boroughs over the next year.
Clare said: “I would very much encourage groups around Newham to get involved.”
People from Newham will feature among the 10,000 Clare is aiming to capture for a photographic mural that will be up to two-kilometres long and weigh one-and-a-half tons.
The monster photograph is to be exhibited at ExCeL in the Royal Docks when it is completed.
