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.
Thanks to @hammersmith_community_gardens for hosting our sessions in their wonderful Glasshouses in Ravenscourt park, thanks to #TinaWood @masbrocentre for her valuable assistance and the participants for their trust and eagerness to learn and be open to the creative process. It would be a delight to share more on this wonderful community focused project.

OPEN CALL: KNOWING YOU- 2

Knowing You is a photography project working with women of different faiths and backgrounds to inspire bonding, creativity and community cohesion.

‘Knowing You’ is a photography and community project that aims to erase barriers, foster cohesion, acceptance and creativity using photography and storytelling to produce photostories based on the participants.  The first ‘Knowing You’ project took place with women of White City and it culminated in the creation of powerful stories and photographs collected in a Knowing You photo book

The Knowing You project is among the 40 selected projects ‘deemed exceptional’ and has received a Recognised Award from the Faith & Belief Forum  and Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Greater London’s Council on Faith for having provided support, respite and are working to make London a city that is inclusive to everyone and continuing to do so despite the challenges posed by the current pandemic.

Photojournalism Hub will be running a women photography project ‘Knowing You-2’ starting on the 13th March 2021 (to be confirmed).

We invite women living in London W12 to express their interest in joining in this wonderful free project by contacting cinzia@photojournalismhub.org
