one year on, in many of these areas referred to as 'black spots', international or governmental aid is still yet to reach some of the most severely hit villages. It has instead been left to small NGOs like TBU and local people to, quite literally, pick up the pieces of their broken lives.Read More
A couple of months ago I was asked by the supremely talented team at ZZ&D creative agency to shoot a series of portraits for the new 'Let's talk about it' campaign for the North London Rape Crisis centre (run by London based charity Solace Women's Aid).
The North London Rape Crisis service is a new free helpline, set up to provide life-saving emotional support to survivors of sexual violence and abuse, in a critical climate of unprecedented demand for services and insecure funding. The anonymous listening service is available to women and girls aged 13+ who have experienced any form sexual violence or abuse at any time.
The campaign: The ZZ&D design team created a series of posters and A5 flyers that have been distributed across GPs, community spaces, refuges and universities in the seven boroughs covered by the service. For the final campaign, the images I shot were were coupled with messages addressing common barriers victims face in discussing and reporting sexual violence and abuse.
The results can be seen below. Keep up the amazing work guys.
On a beautiful sunny day in Adelaide, South Australia the deligthful Ben & Kristy invited friends and family to the Tin cat Cafe to celebrate their wedding. I thought I'd share a few of the shots - particularly the 'behind the scenes' ones before the big I do! The sun was shining, the drinks were flowing and there was barely a dry eye in the house! click on the an image to bring up a full screen version in lightbox.
