Pictures of London and Madison-Plains high school seniors are popping up in storefront windows throughout downtown London.

Who’s putting them there? That would be Larry Peters, owner of Peters Photography in London. The longtime portrait expert wanted to do something to recognize this year’s graduates, as well as bring attention to local businesses–both of which are coping with the changes the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has brought to everyone’s lives.

While Larry was out distributing the 11×17 posters to participating merchants along Main and High streets, his wife and co-owner of the business, Karen, talked about the project.

“Larry just wanted to honor the Class of 2020 because they basically got shafted. They need some sort of recognition because they are not going to get to graduate like everyone else has,” she said.

“This is a way to help the merchants, too–to have people go around and find their pictures and realize what the merchants are doing for everyone, too, during this time.”

The photos on display–approximately 110 in all–are seniors who had their headshots taken at the Peters Photography studio. Different photos are displayed in each storefront window.

Larry has contacted all of the students whose pictures are involved in the project. The photos will remain up until May 29, at which time the students can pick up their photos from the merchants at no charge.

Any London or Madison-Plains senior not already involved in the project is welcome to get their headshot taken at Peters Photography for $15.
