Taxi Tales

"This country's problems could be put right at a stroke but the people to do it are too busy cutting hair and driving taxis." (Alex Simpson, 'Hairdresser's Tales' 1999)

Following in the footsteps of last year's Hairdresser's Tales local writer Daphne Glazer has been working with local taxi drivers on a book of stories to be launched on the last day of the Humber Mouth. All are welcome to join them on this Sunday afternoon at Lloyd's Cafe Bar to find out what life can be like behind the wheel of a Hull Taxi.

'Taxi Tales' - a collection of writings and stories by the taxi drivers of Hull will be available on the launch day and afterwards from ArtLink Exchange (01482) 345104

from Monday 6th November   Take 5 Cafe, Hull Central Library
A Humber Mouth Special Commission

Taxi Tales - The Exhibition

Taxi Tales Local photographer Sarah Jane Daniels has been out and about in Hull taxis and taxi offices. By using a combination of panoramic images and recorded sounds from the taxi ranks, her work for 'Taxi Tales' creates a stark contrast between the frozen silence of the photographs and the exchanges between cabbies and their customers.

The exhibition can be seen at the Take 5 Cafe from Monday 6th & throughout November.

This project has received funding from the BT Reading Challenge
