Over the past tow years, mentors from the London Region of the Royal Photographic Society in conjunction with Cafe Art have been helping a group of photographers affected by homelessness. Running the group - online during lockdowns and in person at all other times - mentors have been helping participants to improve their photographic skills and confidence during a very difficult period. This Exhibition - from 5th to 29th January 2022 - showcases work from twelve of the photographers, with each photographer displaying a set of four photographs taken during the period. Participating photographers are: Al Benthovsky, Damian, Dee Alison, Goska Calik, Lui Saatchi, Maurice Woolger, McGinlay, Michelle, Saffron Saidi, Shenan Chandler, Simon Mart Dennis, Wayne Chin. The Exhibition will be on display in the Gallery at the Brixton Library from 5th January to 30th January 2022.
