YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN THIS …
a photography project for you to join
We are so excited to announce a new photography project for you to take part in. Inspired by the lyrics of a Mumford and Sons track Jane found on Josh’s phone after his belongings were returned to us from Vietnam. ‘You Are Not Alone In This’ will be an online collection of your images all taken as a response to our grief during Covid-19.
Leading this project is our good friend and colleague Annabel Richmond who says:
“We are sailing upon uncharted waters at this time of world upheaval. Humanity is having to deal with grief in so many shapes and forms as the Corona virus storms our planet. And, the social isolation that we now find ourselves confined within can make grief feel far more profound. We are all learning to be in this together and would very much like to support you at this time. We want you to know that YOU are not alone.”
How to get involved:
Post an image on your own social media account using the hashtag #youarenotaloneinthis and/or send us the photograph so that we can reshare it on our social media and credit you publicly.
How to connect with us:
There are three ways you can share your photo with us:
If you have already have posted it on Instagram, please make sure you tag us with @thegoodgriefproject and then simply send the photo via direct message to our instagram account (its the paper dart icon)
If you use Facebook please add your photo to The Good Grief Photo Project page. This is a private group so you will need to join – it only takes a few moments.
Or send us your image by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please feel free to provide a few words alongside your image and, if you feel comfortable, perhaps your geographic region too.
What you choose to photograph is up to you but we would ask that the photo be taken during this Covid-19 Lockdown period (March 23 to the present date) and that it does in some way express or relate to your grief. Please send us the image only, with no text superimposed. The file should be no more than 10MB.
By sending an image to us, you are happy that:
a) we may edit the image slightly to suit the social media size;
b) that we may also use the image within a gallery on social media and our website and
c) we plan to create a slideshow ‘film’ of the final image collection that may or may not include your photo.
