Summer Workshop 2012, Brixton

Amelia has worked with young people doing photography for over 4 years. Workshops have been predominantly based in Brixton and the East End of London working with youth centres, schools and disability programs to deliver exciting after-school and holiday activities for young people to gain confidence, develop their own eye and engage with their own project. All projects are free to attend and are funded through youth organisations, councils and fundraising bodies.

Most young people have a camera on their phone or a digital camera which can be used to make great images, using professional lighting and a studio however can be really exciting to enhance your photography skills and feel comfortable working with larger equipment.

All workshops have a pathway to an exhibition of work, in any form either as a framed exhibit in the local area, a collage of work to display in school, at home or youth centre or an online portfolio or blog.

This is to give the participants the opportunity to show their work to family and friends and have the opportunity to be given praise for their work which builds confidence.

Sometimes galleries are daunting and intimidating places to go to. Its good to get a feel for going in and enjoying what is on offer as well as understanding different ways to look at art and getting inspiration for your own project.

Participants aged 10 - 14 worked on a series of images that best describe their own femininity and women they know who inspire them. Using concepts of masking and photoshop the girls made self titled projects that challenged ideas of beauty, identity and family.

This project was run at an all female youth centre in South London focusing on capturing ideas of community and what it means to us. The workshop was spread over three days which included a gallery visit and going out in to the local community and photographing people and areas that related to the girl's ideas of community.

The final images were collated in to a collage piece and arranged by the girls to be exhibited in their youth centre. They used Hockney style collaging to achieve the effects of distorted, larger images.
