Caring in Confidence
Collaborator and Photographer Georgia Bond started working with children supported by Cheshire Young Carers in 2019. Caring in Confidence reflects the photographic collaboration between Georgia Bond and the young carers. Constituted by a series of drop in photography workshops hosted within respite sessions. In response to the ideology that; creative opportunities can have a positive effect on the mental health of children, specifically young carers. The body of work has been a process driven project, that has created a space for experimentation within visual art through sustained collaborative practice. An ethical foreground has been developed, to develop the confidence of the children - through themes of self-portraiture and representation. Photography has become a tool for empowerment.
