Crisis Skylight photographers participate in ‘Olympic Voices’ exhibition
Crisis Skylight photographers will document their experience of the Olympic Games in a bid to feature in a special exhibition.
The Olympic Voices project will take on a photographic element this summer in partnership with Crisis Skylight and culminating during Photomonth East London later this year.
The project aims to show the London 2012 experience from the perspective of rough sleepers and people living in hostels.
Videos, diaries, and photographic stories of participants’ experiences of the Games will create a timeline of the events from their perspective. Crisis Skylight and Providence Row photographers will have the opportunity to take photographs during Crisis Skylight photography workshops, or they will be able to submit them directly to the Olympic Voices website.
Crisis Skylight centres provide a critical link with the wider community, both through volunteer tutors, and the links that Crisis fosters with a range of arts and education organisations.
Each fortnight a selection of the best photographs will be posted on the Olympic Voices website.
Submissions will continue throughout the year with the best pieces selected to feature in the Olympic Voices exhibition in November as part of Photomonth. Photomonth East London is an international photography festival which exhibits work by established and emerging photographers.
