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
