CAPTURING CRISIS

I am incredibly pleased to present the first edition of ‘Capturing Crisis’ photography and reporting magazine produced by our youths group living in west London participating in the ‘Stories, Reporting Mag, Photography Course’ project.
In this first edition of ‘Capturing the Crisis’, we present photo stories and articles on the impact of the cost of living crisis on various communities in London. It includes personal and introspective stories of people living the crisis as well as stories reflecting on the way the city of London is rapidly changing as a result of it. Nonetheless, the photography is particularly captivating as each participant is developing their individual style and line of research. I hope you enjoy this first edition and will follow and support the ‘Capturing Crisis’ magazine.
I am very proud for the commitment, talent and drive demonstrated by the young participants.

Capturing Crisis is a youth documentary and photojournalism magazine. All features and photographs are created by participants of ‘Stories, Reporting Mag, Photography Course’.
The magazine provides the opportunity for youths who never had access to, to share their photography and photo stories to a large audience. Photojournalism Hub is committed to providing opportunities and support to youths, enabling equality in accessing opportunities for further education and work in the photo industry.
Capturing Crisis magazine is a testament of the great work and inspiring contribution of our youths.

The project is supported by the NHS west London trust, Hammersmith and Fulham Council and Sobus.
