THE PAST

WHERE I CAME FROM

WHY I KNOW WE CAN HELP

In 2013, after nearly two years of homelessness, Christopher found a life-changing opportunity in a photography workshop. The experience ignited his passion for visual storytelling. His work gained recognition, being showcased in prominent community spaces and even in a John Lewis store.

Seeing his work on display inspired Christopher to break free from homelessness and restart his life. Two years later, he secured a home and received an old camera as a gift, solidifying his destiny as a photographer.

With newfound purpose, he used photography not only for creative expression but also to empower others. Over the years, his dedication and evolving photography gained recognition, reinforcing his commitment to making a positive impact on the world.

Christopher’s journey from homelessness to a celebrated photographer is a testament to the transformative power of photography and resilience. Through photography, he found his purpose and gave voice to meaningful stories.

CHANGING LIVES ONE BY ONE

Christopher envisions a future where the work of the foundation continues to use photography as a powerful tool for positive change. With a focus on inclusivity, the foundation aims to reach more marginalised individuals, providing opportunities for self-expression and employment.

Christopher sees the transformative impact of photography extending beyond personal stories, fostering community engagement, promoting understanding, and contributing to broader inclusion in society. The foundation’s track record and commitment to creating a more inclusive and empathetic society position it as a beacon of hope and empowerment in the years to come.

I know I can’t solve everything or help everyone. What I can do is make a difference to one person, and I can keep doing that. Helping people one person at a time, over and over and over agiain.
