A Virtual Street Photo Exhibition for Charity

Come join us for a week of discovering stories from afar through a charitable street photography virtual experience!

This month my partner Matt and I were supposed to be hosting our first Exhibition together in Brighton, UK with some of our favourite street photos from our travels over the past few years. Sadly, as with so many people right now, our plans are no longer possible given Covid19. However, rather than let it go, we’ve decided to use the digital tools available to us to take our Exhibition online and create a unique 100% Virtual Experience!

Profits from this exhibition will be donated to World Vision’s Covid Crisis Response to support those most vulnerable (more details below).

3 Ways to Explore the ‘Street Stories from Afar’ Exhibition

Why We've Created This Exhibition

Share our Passion for Street Photography

Raise Money for WV’s Covid19 Crisis Response

Street photography has brought both Matt and I so many incredible experiences over the years. It has allowed us to explore new locations in so much more depth, lead to so many fascinating conversations with people (often over a shared coffee in their homes) and even allowed us to see familiar locations in a completely new way. We’ve also found it an incredibly therapeutic activity that has had benefits for our mental well-being. Plus as a result you have photos to enjoy and remind you of these experiences (our home is full of them).

Throughout this exhibition, we hope we can rub off some of this passion for exploring places in this way and maybe inspire you to give it a ago. Alongside our stories we are also sharing some of our top street photography tips and key things we’ve learnt along the way.

As we quickly learned in the UK, while we’ve all been impacted by Covid19 in some way, the suffering has not been equally spread. Around the world people in developing countries have been hit especially hard. Without welfare systems like Furloughing and Universal Credit and low income households usually living day to day, the lock-down has pushed many families into extreme poverty and potentially starvation. In India (currently 4th highest number of Covid19 cases in the world) after a lockdown was imposed without warning and the public transport network was shut down many families had to walk hundreds of km back to their villages. Then you have the virus itself which is having a horrific impact when set against weak health care systems.

We want to use this exhibition to help raise awareness and support for some of these most vulnerable communities. We’re raising money through print sales with all profits from this exhibition going to World Vision’s Covid Crisis Response. World Vision is a NGO we worked with in Nepal, photos of which are featured in the exhibition.

Want to help us raise more money?

If you enjoy our exhibition, can we ask you a massive favour?! If you think any of your friends or family would also enjoy it, please share it with them.

We’re hoping to raise as much money as possible for the Covid19 Crisis Response and the more people we can connect with through this exhibition the greater the chance we have of meeting this goal.

So any shares or shout outs on social media would be hugely appreciated!

If you’re part of a community that would like to learn and explore more (either on the topic of Street Photography or on how to create a virtual exhibition experience) we’d be happy to do a live Q&A or interview with you.

We’re really grateful for your support! Thank you.
