A Little History
Probably the nearest thing to Photomobile’s birthday or perhaps we should say conception, as a result of the charity Aware Photographic Arts from Liverpool winding up, is the 3rd October 2006. On that evening the trustees voted to transfer ownership of the “Mobile Photogaphic Unit” to the Directors of Redeye, as a result of intervention from the Arts Council. From this Photomobile was born, a sister to Redeye, and it became a full-fledged Limited company in November 2007.

Credit is due to the various midwives involved in the birth – in particular the Aware trustees Roger Kirk-Smith and Phil Gorry, Will Carr from Arts Council England, Paul Herrmann from Redeye, Ben from The Phone Book Ltd and Chris Leyland for expert advice, and of course we pay tribute to Colin Thomas, founder of Aware, who had the Unit built.
