'A Penny For Your Thoughts' is the culmination of a three-month residency in Sunderland. 
Sweeting interviewed 24 individuals to record their most treasured memories connected to places in the city. From these, she selected six of the most evocative stories, and recreated them through photography.

The resulting photographs reveal both the best-known sights of the city and coastline as well as hidden un-noticed places, in an entirely new light.

A Penny For Your Thoughts’ was exhibited at the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art in Sunderland.
