2018_POP-UP_RNLI_DUNGENESS

NATALIE ADAMS volunteer RNLI crew member at Dungeness Lifeboat Station
I photographed Natalie at my pop-up studio at Dungeness last summer.
Her family have a long history with the RNLI and her father is the current
Coxwain at the station.  They are very modest about their invaluable
work as volunteer lifesavers.

"I am the only female crew member at present but I would 100% recommend
volunteering to other women. I have always been made to feel so welcome
and part of the team. We are serious when we need to be but also have
a good laugh, and being part of a team you never feel like you are out
there on your own, and there is also great satisfaction knowing you've
helped someone at the end of the day. You don't need any sea going experience
as all training is provided, just a desire to learn and to get stuck in." 
"Dungeness was famous for it's Lady Launchers in the past, so there
has always been a strong positive theme of female volunteers at the
station. One of our original Lady Launchers still volunteers as our
press officer, and we have other women on the team involved in station visits,
fundraising and youth education, and all give up their time to save
lives at sea."

Natalie also works full-time as Helm at Gravesend Lifeboat Station
on the river Thames. There are currently ten female crew and last year
they had their first all female shift.

"My proudest moment at the RNLI was my passing out ceremony as a Helm
at Gravesend."

On 14th December 1918, one hundred years ago today, women voted for
the first time, and in that same year the first female MP was elected.
To mark this significant moment in history the 209women artist-led
initiative has taken over parliament. 209 new photographic portraits
of all the female MPs, shot exclusively by female photographers, are
now hanging in the once male-dominated gallery at Portcullis House

My portrait of Dr.Rosena Allin-khan MP, the Shadow Minister for Sport.
Dr.Rosena was buzzing with energy and ideas at our makeshift studio on
the Commons Terrace. We ended the photoshoot with her performing a series
of spontaneous star jumps before dashing across London to continue her
work as a medical doctor at St.George's A&E.

My thanks to Frances Prescott for Dr.Rosena's makeup & hair, Julie Stewart
for photography assistance, and Leah Band for her work in post production.
Also massive thanks to the photographer Hilary Wood who conceived the
idea for, and created 209women, and to all the other women photographers
and MPs involved with this project whom it is my privilege to be associated with
The exhibition previewed last night at Portcullis House, Houses of
Parliament, and opens to the public from today. Click here to book tickets.
