I am delighted to discover that I have also won both the Documentary and Landscape categories in this years Julia Margaret Cameron awards! Again, my complete and sincere thanks to the JMC judging panel for selecting my work, which I hope will help to highlight some of the issues illustrated below :
WINNER DOCUMENTARY SINGLE :
This is Kate Morrissey who received a custodial sentence as a result of her heroin addiction. She is now an NHS manager, and leads campaigns to bring about reform of the criminal justice system. See her moving and inspiring TED talk “Do we truly believe in rehabilitation?”
WINNER LANDSCAPE SERIES :
‘More Wallander than Broadchurch, this small urban hamlet with incongruous planting and strange street furniture appears no more than a ribbon of mid-century houses between vast wastelands and the sea.‘ This is a series from my personal project Urban Palms.
HONORABLE MENTION DOCUMENTARY SERIES :
These images were taken last year on the road from Cardiff to Greenham Common. I documented a reenactment of the nine day 110 mile protest march that started the Greenham Women’s Peace Camp – the largest female-led protest since suffrage. To find out more about this initiative please take a look at the work by activist group Greenham Women Everywhere, or check out my previous blog post on this event here.
Massive congratulations to all the other winners and finalists in this year’s JMC awards.
