Seeing Carers – a carers’ photography project

by | Jun 21, 2022 | Carer News

If you are in Hastings or St. Leonard’s before the end of July, please go along to the free public exhibition ‘Seeing Carers: a carers photography project’ along the outpatients corridor of the Conquest Hospital.

Carer with photoYou will see some of the many thought-provoking images which were taken by carers who were mentored by Hastings based photographer John Cole through a number of workshops. Thanks to @18hours for project managing the workshops.  The exhibition will run until the end of July.

With the support of local events organisation 18 Hours, the Hastings-based portrait photographer John Cole was commissioned to carry out a series of workshops using photography to help carers explore their caring role and share their experiences of caring with the wider public.

Taking place over the last two years, the workshops have provided a safe and inspirational place for more than 100 carers, to come together and develop their skills in photography.

The exhibition features 40 images taken by carers who have participated in the workshops, along with some images by the project Photographer in Residence John Cole, commissioned for the exhibition.
