About Me, and my Community – issue 1

‘About Me, and my Community’ is a photography digital visual journal showcasing the work and group activities of older residents of Hammersmith and Fulham, participants of the ‘About Me, and My Community’ photography project run by the Photojournalism Hub.

This first edition showcase photos, poetry and writings reflecting on communities and the environment. We present photographs that highlight the importance of green spaces for our community living and personal introspection. In addition, we also share a beautiful poem by one of our participants dedicated to trees and photographs that highlights moments of collectiveness, visual resonance and reflections.

CELEBRATING THE ‘ABOUT US’ PHOTOBOOK

We are thrilled to announce that the photobooks produced with the participants of the ‘About us’ project are printed!
The project worked with senior residents living in London Hammersmith & Fulham and focused on using visual narrative and photography as a tool for self expression and a means to develop and foster togetherness and friendship.
Facilitating this project has been very positive and we are very proud for the achievements that participants accomplished.
A special thanks for their valuable support to the funders of the project @hamunitedcharities.
