Hello everyone!

I am a 3rd year photography student at the University of West London (Formerly TVU) in West London and for my major project I am hoping to do a photo essay on carers in the community. This will be an honest vision on life as a carer on a daily basis, the images will be accompanied by short interviews and quotes from the participants, ensuring that the end result of the photo project is from the viewpoint of the carers and not my own interpretation. This is the first part of a larger project focusing on people in society who are sometimes forgotten about/overlooked, invisible but incredibly valuable.

I am based in the South London area but am happy to travel. As I am not a carer and this is unknown territory for me, I would also welcome any advice regarding how to go about searching for participants.

I am more than happy to go into more detail about the project and how I intend to approach this, so please feel free to email me on: charlotteshawphoto@hotmail.co.uk.

Thank you for reading this!

Take care... Lottie x Image
