The exhibition, drawn from thousands of entries from over 60 countries, showcases a diverse range of images: from the World Food Programme Food for Life category, showing the humanitarian aspect of food, to the Marks & Spencer Food Portraiture category, spotlighting food photography and styling.

Young Carers: A Life in Focus

The Royal Photographic Society in partnership with Action for Children, have been working with Young Carers Across the UK. Inviting them to take part in a project that would enable them to learn new things and showcase what’s important to them.

Young Carers: A Life in Focus showcases the work of young carers across the UK, showing what they feel makes them unique and telling stories of things most important to them. Their experiences and interests come together to highlight the day-to-day lives of young people outside of their caring roles and gives them a platform to test new skills and celebrate their creativity. 

RPS Gallery, Bristol. 21 December - 21 January 2023
