Picture this: 1.4 trillion digital images will be taken in 2020 – most of them on our phones – but when we pick up a camera, do we know that we can use it as a powerful tool to support our mental health? We’re here to open up that conversation by encouraging the young to start using photography as a mindful practice.
We’re proud to have teamed up with world-leading photographers to create four workshop films which are freely available online. Designed for 11-18 year olds, the Show and Tell workshops and accompanying tasks are teaching children all over the country photography techniques to support their mental wellbeing.
At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, we invited young people across the country to practice their new photography skills and bring their emotions to life with a photograph for the Show and Tell exhibition; titled: How Are You Feeling? These extraordinary words and photos are their story of an endless pandemic and how they are really feeling during these challenging times.
