Coldplay.com have today reported that Guy Berryman wants YOU to find old photographs for an art project. The article doesn't specifically say it is linked to the forthcoming fifth album, but stranger things have happened. If you think you will be participating the let us know at the Coldplay forum. Here is the request posted earlier...
Good afternoon. We have a mission for you - or rather, Guy does. Here's the info from the man himself: "Hello. I'm looking for your help to find old photographs, for a personal art project. They can be good photos, or completely out of focus. They can be black and white or colour. The point is that they are pictures dating back to the 1960s and before, that have been thrown away and found again - rather than your own old family photographs. Thanks for your help. I'm really excited about this!"
At the beginning of May, we'll be giving you the details of a PO Box address to send photos to - which gives you a few weeks to start rooting around your local charity/thrift stores and antique/secondhand shops. Unfortunately, we won't be able to return the photographs - but, as Guy says, he's looking for found/discarded photographs, rather than your own personal ones. Happy old photo hunting! Anchorman.
