Photography+ #10 Care

2020 was a year of unexpected change and challenge. A year which forced us to stop or to pivot direction. For some, 2020 allowed time to think, to reflect, to experiment or to change. It has also without a doubt highlighted how we care; for each other, for ourselves and for our communities.

This issue of Photography+ explores photography in relation to care. We have published an exclusive conversation between photographer Peter Watkins and writer Oliver Shamlou, a conclusion to Watkins' series The Unforgotten'to some future place where the centrality of this trauma is moved aside.'

Meanwhile, artist Othello De'Souza-Hartley  speaks to us about his practice and forthcoming projects, including a new self-portrait in his father's empty bedroom. 

We are pleased to partner with Wellcome to bring you a creative writing response to their current commission The Covid-19 Anxiety Project. Read a new piece of writing by West Midlands based curator and writer Anneka French who, when looking at the images, shares how her own memories of lockdown are evoked, and poems come to her.

We are excited to share new work by Murray Ballard, Zoe Childerley, Celine Marchbank and Helen Sear for CONNECT – the 3Ts hospital redevelopment public art programme at Brighton's Royal Sussex County Hospital. Stay tuned as we also have four very special films to release from the artists in the new year! 

Finally, delve in and enjoy the final essay by our 2020 Writer in Residence Marissa Chen: The Many Faces of Self-Care.
