My View from the Bridge Photography Project

My View from the Bridge Photography Project

The bridge referred to in Arthur Miller’s 1956 classic is Brooklyn Bridge. On one side of that bridge is Brooklyn, a working-class area filled with Italian immigrants, like the Carbone family in the play, who look across the river to rich Manhattan and all that it represents of the American Dream, which they are unlikely to ever achieve. In the play, the audience is effectively looking down from the bridge, into the lives below.

MY View from the Bridge

Tying in to the themes in Miller’s play, Theatre Cloud and A View from the Bridge’s producers invite you to take a photograph from a bridge near you. We're looking for unique views - how artistic can you be? how unusual? how zany? 

  • Put yourself or others in the frame, or not
  • Choose an angle, decide what to focus on, vary the time of day or night
  • Be sure to caption your picture – where is this bridge and what you can see from your view of it?

How to submit

Upload your photo and caption via this page by Friday 29 May 2015.  Photos MUST be original and owned by you (no nicking off Google Images allowed). They should be jpeg or gif, with recommended image size of 700 x 525 pixels and no more than 100kb.  Larger images may be declined.  Once you submit, please help spread the word by sharing a link to the Project and your individual submission using the #ViewBridge hashtag.

  • FIRST PRIZE - a Go-Pro Action Camera and Starter Kit - Expert judges will choose the top winning photograph from a longlist drawn up by TheatreCloud and the company of A View from the Bridge.
