CAPTURING CRISIS

In this new edition of ‘Capturing Crisis’ youth photography magazine, we present a special edition on a local coffee shop to learn of its championing and success. We present a photo essay on the charity Nourish Hub documenting its cycle of sustainability, healthy and free food for all.
Our young team also reported on Free Palestine local and national responses. And we present evocative images at Meanwhile Gardens, a photo story on volunteers creating a community garden at Factory Quarter in west London.
In the last pages, we present the world of teenagers and friends, and a few portraits from a series of portraits of staff at The Globe, the dedicated Shakespeare Theatre in central London. We hope you enjoy Capturing Crisis youth magazine!

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.

Capturing Crisis

I am incredibly pleased to present the fifth edition of Capturing Crisis photography and reporting magazine produced by the group of youths of the ‘Stories, Reporting Mag, Photography Course’ project.
Responding to the cost of living crisis, the young photographers have produced photo stories and photographs covering topics that expose social justice issues as well as current social and environmental changes.
In this issue, you will find photo stories documenting a community led urban space called ‘Meanwhile’ and street photography that in a candid manner seek to document the impact of the economic crisis.
I am very proud for the commitment, talent and drive demonstrated by the young participants.
