Back in May The Duchess of Cambridge launched a community photography project which was to be spearheaded by the public. The idea behind ‘Hold Still’ was to capture the spirit, the mood, the hopes, the fears and the feelings of the UK as we continue to deal with the Coronavirus outbreak.
The project is open to all ages and abilities, Hold Still will capture a snapshot of the UK at this time, creating a collective portrait of lockdown which will reflect resilience and bravery, humour and sadness, creativity and kindness, and human tragedy and hope.
One hundred shortlisted portraits will feature in a gallery without walls – a one of a kind digital exhibition open to all this August.
The images can be captured on phones or cameras and each image will be assessed on the emotion and experience it conveys rather than its photographic quality or technical expertise. Our Year 5 MTJBS pupils took part in this fantastic project and you can see a selection of their efforts below.
Well done to everyone who took part, hopefully you will be featured in the digital exhibition in August!
