‘Knowing You’ is a photobook documenting the lives of the women who participated in a photography project called ‘Knowing You’ run by the Photojournalism Hub. Women of different faiths and backgrounds formed bonding and friendship through working on a photo story of each other.
The project aims to dispel prejudice and break down barriers of ethnic, religious and racial discrimination working on the idea that encouraging yourself to get to know someone that you otherwise wouldn’t, results in improved community cohesion and bonding. The photobook is a testimony to the power of these human connections.
The ‘Knowing You’ project has been kindly funded by the charity Near Neighbours and has recently been awarded a Recognised project by London Faith & Belief and Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Greater London’s Council on Faith.
