PhotoVoice Newsletter

February 2016

Hello and welcome to the February Newsletter.

In the past few weeks, we have been at the London Art Fair delivering a talk on diversity in photography, as well as exhibiting one of our projects ‘My Home, My Farm’. We’ve launched our next photography competition with the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, and Alexander Mourant brings us the second in a five-part series on his journey through Africa. As ever, please hit reply and share your thoughts and ideas. Also, you can follow us on Twitter @photovoice.

Exhibition: ‘My Home, My Farm’

London Art Fair this year enabled us to revisit the project ‘MyPharm’. In partnership with Christian Aid, the project looks at the issues affecting Ghanaian farmers. As an exhibition piece ‘My Home, My Farm’ displayed the life, worries and successes of Ghanaian farmers through their eyes.

Photographic lucky dip
