How photography changed our lives

Young people launch their own emotional film during which they each tell their own very different stories of how photography has completely transformed their lives.

Produced and directed philanthropically by Positive View Ambassadors Andrew McGovern and James Waggott, each young person reveals for the first time the unbearable experiences they endured early in life – and how this has been overcome by participating in the Positive View Youth Empowerment Programme.

These young people have shown the power 
of photography to document their personal experiences 
of lockdown while, at the same time supporting their own well-being during a challenging time. Their images are powerful and insightful and add to our collective understanding of how society is responding 
to the pandemic. The RPS is proud to be working 
with Positive View to empower our next generation 
of photographers.
