About The Photography Movement
The Photography Movement was launched in 2017 by best friends Scott Shillum and Steve Wallington after they had both lost close family and friends to suicide.
It is a not for profit organisation, fostering a community spirit where individuals of all ages can discuss mental wellbeing through the medium of photography.
Through a carefully curated programme of exhibitions, workshops and talks, The Photography Movement enables and encourages people to compose, capture and share images that tell the story of how they feel.
Breaking the silence around the sensitive subject of mental health, the movement also raises awareness and funds for charity partners.
Scott and Steve share a life long passion for photography, with Scott having been a national newspaper picture editor for over a decade before founding visual communications agency Vismedia, and Steve working as a creative director for numerous top-tier advertising and creative agencies.
The images of Scott and Steve above are from the www.letstalkcampaign.com by Charlie Clift and Kate Forrester. The campaign aims to spark millions of conversations about mental health by literally drawing people’s most difficult thoughts on their faces to encourage others to open up about their own mental health. A campaign that chimed perfectly with the ethos of The Photography Movement.
