I’m honoured to join Someone’s Daughter, a photographic exhibition from The View Magazine, part of its campaign for justice and penal reform for women.
Top photographers have taken portraits of ’15 leading women and 15 women activists who were former prisoners…to show that the women of the criminal justice system are, first and foremost, women’. The goal is to ‘change the lens and shift the focus…to that which connects us, rather than separates us.’
The exhibition will visit several venues in the UK, including Photo London at Somerset House (September 9th-12th), the National Justice Museum in Nottingham, Southampton Solent University (Oct 4th-29th), and the House of Lords.
Among those photographed are Professor M.M. McCabe, Rachel Treweek Bishop of Gloucester, HHJ Raffia Arshad, Edwina Grosvenor, Khatuna Tsintsadze, Alison Lapper, Brenda Hale and Nicole Jacobs. I’ve been photographed by Carol Allen-Storey, the award-winning photojournalist who specialises in covering humanitarian and social issues.
The photos will be auctioned to raise funds for The View Magazine, and a set of signed prints will be donated to the National Portrait Gallery for its permanent collection.
