A PHOTOGRAPHER from near Malpas has seen her work featured in a national exhibition to health and care workers in London.

Julie Herbert Adams, based in Stretton, took part in the 2020 Vision Project, with a specific focus on care workers from Whitchurch but also looking at health workers from further afield.

A small taster exhibition was held at the end of September, with a view to hold the full exhibition next year, with one of Julie's photographs being featured in the former, much to her delight.

"The 2020 Vision project held their first 'taster' exhibition in London at the end of September and it was a great success and got a lot of coverage," said Julie,

"I wanted to focus specifically on front line care workers and the portraits I took were of carers from Community Integrated Care, AStar Homecare Services and Edgely House and Court Nursing Home in Whitchurch.

"One of my portraits was chosen to exhibit at the launch which was very exciting."

The photograph chosen for the September exhibition was of a support care worker at Community Integrated Care.

"One image from each chosen photographer to form part of the collective was exhibited as a visual tribute to the NHS care and social care workers who selflessly cared for those initially stuck down with Covid-19 in early 2020," added Julie.

"In 2021, it is planned to tour the full exhibition across the UK and hopefully beyond.

"However things pan out, no one can deny that we are living through historic times.

"I am so honoured and proud to be a small part of this awesome collective of creative photographers and thank the organisers for giving me this important opportunity to shine a light on the social care sector.

"These powerful images show that love and compassion really do triumph over all adversity."
