What is it like to be a young person? is a photography exhibition part of a Youth Arts Showcase presenting photography by youths living in White City and Wormholt, London.
Photojournalism Hub has worked with young people living in White City and Wormholt in west London to help them to tell their story through photography of what it is like to grow up today in west London.
The poignant and inspiring photography produced reflect the state of being of young people following the experiences of upheaval, loss, and insecurity poised by Covid-19 pandemic and the extended lockdowns to contain the spread of the virus. Finding metaphors in water, leaves and reflective materials in nature, the young photographers have taken to landscape photography, to their peers, and to the documentation of their friends’ lives as a means of presenting their own lives.
We share the digital version of the booklet that accompanied the photography exhibition.
