Join us for the public and schools' night at "I Feel Like Taking Pictures Everyday", an exhibition featuring the work of six local schools from Tower Hamlets.
This exhibition presents the photography of school children from The Stepney Partnership, six schools within Tower Hamlets where the majority of children are of Bengali origin. Artist/photographer Mark McEvoy, in collaboration with Foto8, has facilitated a series of creative digital photography workshops with over 300 students across five primary schools and one secondary school. Many participating children had never used an SLR camera before.Mark McEvoy
is an artist with a documentary approach. He uses photography, video and sound to investigate and archive life experience. His work has been exhibited widely and published worldwide.
