Baobab Centre - For young survivors in exile

Late last summer I met and photographed a group of young people who are supported by the Baobab Centre. Their stories are extraordinary,  their determination to build a new life inspiring. The images were make for an event earlier this year at which their remarkable stories were shared and celebrated.


Mind You - A mental health website for young people

Early in the summer I was contacted by Christina Wheeler from in South Gloucestershire Council, who was working with a group of young people to create a website about mental health. The website will act as an information hub for 11 – 18 year-olds, parents, carers and professionals, giving ideas about how to keep mentally healthy and where to access local services. I spend a day in June with this lovely group of young people, making portraits for the website.

Working with Artists First on their ongoing HLF Archive Project

I have worked with Artists First, a group of disabled artists with learning disabilities, for many years now. During 2016/17 they have been building an archive of their work and projects that will be launched as a website and accompanying film in late in 2017 to celebrate their 25th anniversary. Over the past few months I have been photographing hundreds of their paintings and drawing to be included in the archive and I have also produced a series of portraits of the artists for the new website.
