Great Ormond Street Hospital Photography Project

As Artist and Photographer in Residence I devised and ran a photography project with young people and children in the Cardiac Wing of Great Ormond Street Hospital. Some of the young people and children were in patients and some were taking part whilst in the waiting areas of the wards (Badger Ward and Dinosaur Ward). They were shown a variety of inspirational photography and invited to take self portraits (or selfies) as well as capture images of their surroundings prior to the demolition of the building. The young people and children took photographs from their own point of view and the images are now exhibited on the Cardiac Wing hoardings on three floors of the hospital.

Recently I visited the hospital again to take some photographs of the hoardings, see below. More coming soon…

Artist in Residence at Leeds Art Gallery

Last month I was Artist in Residence with Leeds Art Gallery for the British Art Show 8. I worked with young people on stories / written work, photography and 3D modelling, responding to themes in the show. They had amazing ideas and worked really hard. Here’s a taster on the BAS8 blog:

My photographic project is in the Independent on Sunday New Review today. A centrefold 3 page spread on the Mayhew Animal Home’s visits to elderly care homes, Therapaws. This is an ongoing photography series I’m working on and it was great to have writer Craig McLean join me on the latest visit. Check out the article in the Independent today.
Thanks, Olivia.
