I'm really pleased to have two of my photographs Suburban Stories and Winter Pool selected for this year's Hepatitis C Trust’s Photography on a Postcard fundraising lottery.
The Hepatitis C Trust is the national UK charity for hepatitis C. Founded to raise awareness of the virus, it provides information, support, representation and works to end discrimination against people living with Hepatitis C.
Every year the trust raises money through its annual secret lottery Art on a Postcard. In October the trust will branch out and introduce Photography on a Postcard. Their intention is to replicate the success they have had in the art world with photography. The Hepatitis C Trust held an open call for upcoming photographers to show alongside invited established photographers such as Wolfgang Tillmans, Martin Parr, Dougie Wallace, Edmund Clark, Chris Steele Perkins, David Hoffman and many more. The resulting 1500 postcard sized photographs will be displayed at The PrintSpace in Shoreditch from 12th - 27th October.
Throughout tickets will be available that as well as raising money for the trust will guarantee a randomly chosen photograph on a postcard after the show closes. All the money raised will go to The Hepatitis C Trust’s campaign to eliminate hepatitis C from the UK by the year 2030.
Winter Pool was shot with CONTAX S2 on Kodak Portra 400 film, Suburban Stories was shot with CONTAX RTS II on Agfa Vista 200 film.
