This is my Hidden portrait exhibition, about England’s young carers, for The Children’s Society, showing at the Oxo Gallery on London’s Southbank.
Hidden tells the story of some of the 166,000 young carers in England, through a collection of compelling portraits, captured by award-winning photographer and former young carer Max Alexander.
Part of The Big Lottery funded Young Carers in Focus programme (YCiF), the exhibition, led by The Children’s Society, explores the challenges young carers face, as well as capturing their resilience, determination and dreams for the future.
The exhibition provides a rare and compelling insight into the responsibility of providing physical, emotional and practical care for a loved one, highlighting the pressure on a person’s well-being and education.
The Children’s Society produced this booklet for the Hidden exhibition.
YCiF will be supporting young carers themselves to help curate the exhibition.
