A series of five short films followed by a London photo exhibition launches today featuring the work of five photographers overcoming their own personal battles to shoot extraordinary images across a dynamic range of subjects.
- Ian Treherne is profoundly deaf and almost totally blind. He shoots portraiture that evokes the way he sees the world
- Jim Mortram’s own recovery from anxiety and depression started when he was gifted a camera. He now trains his lens on others living on the margins of society in his award-winning photo-documentary blog
- Hannah Laycock uses photographic art to raise awareness of Multiple Sclerosis
- Giles Duley stepped on an IED while shooting in Afghanistan. Told his photography career was over he was back in war-torn regions within six months documenting the lives of civilians caught up in conflict
- Daniel Regan relies on his camera to cope with mental health issues and now uses photography and art to help others combat their own conditions
The first film launches online on Monday (16th Oct) with subsequent films released weekly, culminating in a London photography exhibition opening with a private view from 10th November.
