Over the years, PhotoVoice has been championed by many inspiring photographers. From sharing their insights and expertise to donating their time, their support has been invaluable in helping us to deliver innovative projects all over the world.
Several such photographers have donated prints to PhotoVoice, and in a celebration of their work and help, we are delighted to launch a new exhibition at Sunbeam Studios, a photographic, film and event studio in west London.
From now until April, the Sunbeam lobby area has been filled with beautiful, editioned and signed prints, available to purchase. All proceeds will support PhotoVoice’s charitable activities.
Also on show is the PhotoVoice project Having Our Say3, where young people affected by sexual exploitation reflect on and make sense of their experiences. Their insights fed into a new resource to be used by service providers and professionals.
A special invite only closing event will take place in April.
