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

Photography at White City Place

Presenting ‘Photography at White City Place’ zines produced with the participants of a series of Photography Workshops at White City Place in November 2021.

With the kind support of Stanhope Plc, Photojournalism Hub facilitated photography workshops for the local community and those working/living within the White City Place. Young and older people of various background and experiences joined in the workshops and worked on a photo story of each other whilst learning the basic of visual narrative and photography. Through the three weeks, participants developed a visual narrative whilst getting to know each other using the grounds of White City Place and surrounding area. They explored interview technique, environmental portraiture, single images and series resulting in creative, inspiring photo stories of each other. Below we share the digital copy of the White City Place Photography Zines. Printed copies are available at White City Place.
