What is like to be a young person today?

What is it like to be a young person? is a photography exhibition part of a Youth Arts Showcase presenting creative work by youths living in White City and Wormholt, 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.

The project was supported by the charity W12together.org and run by the Photojournalismhub.org

Youth Photography Workshops on Climate Change

As the world struggles to prevent irreversible climate change and further damage to our environment, we recognise that young people, who are largely inheriting this crisis, are both hugely impacted and empowered to play a pivotal role in restoring our natural habitat.

Photojournalism Hub is inviting young people (16+), to participate in a project on climate change consisting of a series of eight documentary photography workshops. During the workshops, participants will work on researching and creating their own documentary-based photo story on an existing environmental challenge/s and/or inspiring actions they see in the local area.

The outcome of the project will be presented in a series of documentary-based photo stories in a zine. These will be the basis of young people’s recommendations for a meaningful collective reflection and action culminated in the first Hammersmith and Fulham youth symposium on climate change.

WORKSHOPS WILL RUN FOR 8 WEEKS STARTING FROM THE 9TH JANUARY AT RIVERSIDE STUDIOS. TO LEARN MORE AND TO BOOK A PLACE HERE.

YOUTHS ON W12

Many areas in London have undergone dramatic and rapid transformations and one of these is White City in West London. Some of the changes have brought benefits but equally some have caused undesired and traumatic personal and community experiences such as displacement, disconnection, isolation. Participants to the Photojournalism Hub twelve weeks free ‘Photojournalism Course for young people’ reflected upon these changes through the medium of photography and have responded to how they see and feel regeneration in their local environment through photographs presented in the ‘Youths on W12’ exhibition. The project was run by the Photojournalism Hub, a not for profit platform that advocates for social justice and human rights through photojournalism as well as by training in storytelling and visual narrative to foster cohesion and to empower disadvantaged, marginalised individuals and communities to tell their stories and create positive changes. ‘Youths on W12’ is kindly supported by London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.
