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 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.

The project was supported by the charity W12Together 

Youths on W12

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.
