RPS London Region supports people who have suffered homelessness by running a photography mentoring group in conjunction with CafeArt.
Twelve photographers each directly affected by homelessness, from the RPS Cafe Art Photography Mentoring Group, have chosen four photos for this new exhibition which opens on Thursday, 5 January and runs until 30 January.
These photographers are from the RPS/Cafe Art mentoring group, who meet up several times a month to improve their photographic skills with the help of mentors from the London REgfion of the Royal Photographic Society. The twelve were asked to submit a panel of 4 photographs representing their style of photography. This has resulted in bodies of work which helps showcase the personalities of the photographers as well as providing a wonderful variety of 48 images in total.
The mentoring group meets at least once a month for a photowalk or other learning experience. This is followed a couple of weeks later by a photo sharing and critiquing session (usually via Zoom) of images taken at the previous event.
Panels from twelve participants are on show in the exhibition which runs from 3rd to 31st January 2023 at the Brixton Tate Library in Windrush Square Brixton.
