The good people at adam&eveDDB have created an online Art Auction to raise funds for The Avenues Youth Project a North London Youth Club offering fun out-of-school activities for young people. The auction brief asked for work which focuses on championing diversity and the stories of people of colour.

Click here to view [and bid on] exciting photography and art by a diverse group of creatives – look out for my personal favourite, Stay at Home by collage artist Anna Bu Kliewer – and help raise funds for a great group of kids at The Avenues.

Auction ends 9pm this Sunday 13th December.

COMMON PEOPLE

My COMMON PEOPLE photography exhibition is currently installed at Doughty Street Chambers,London,
home to renowned international human rights and civil liberties
barristers, including Beccy Trowler QC pictured here. I photographed Beccy,
and other women peace protestors at Greenham Common, during the mid eighties
in the midst of a particularly harsh winter - all as part of my photography degree whilst studying at Salisbury College of Art.

Please message me if you would like to attend the private viewing event.

Women protestors at Greenham Common Peace Camp 1985.

As a photography student I stayed at the camp, documenting life around
the campfire as part of my final year project. I was only
there a few weeks, but in that time I experienced daily evictions,
slept in makeshift tents in sub-zero temperatures, had bricks thrown
at me, and witnessed at first hand the enormity of a cruise missile
convoy. The camp was disbanded two years later when, as a result of
the women's protest, the cruise missiles were removed.
Greenham women, like many other women's protest groups, followed on
from the legacy left to them by the Women's Suffrage Movement. After
years of protesting the suffragettes finally achieved their ambition
in obtaining votes for women on the 6th February 1918, one hundred
years ago today.
