“I spend most of my time in my bedroom. I read in there; I lounge in there. It’s comfortable and is my personal space. It’s where I can be completely relaxed.”

Camden and Islington Councils,Young People’s Health Services and Family Action approached us to work with a small group of young carers during 6 weeks to capture the insights of their daily life, their challenges, their strength, their dreams and their fears.
The exhibition has been developed designed and curated by young people providing unpaid care to family members due to mental illness, physical disability or substance misuse. The pilot participatory photography project and preview event aimed to start discussions, open dialogue and raise awareness of young peoples experiences as carers in London
