Picture Taking: Exploring Myself Through Photography

This exhibition features the work of Emma, Qwayne, Mohamed, Jason, Izu and Luke, students at The Garden School in Hackney.

The Garden School supports children with special educational needs many with an autistic spectrum disorder. When words don’t come easily, photography offers a voice to those for whom everyday communication is a challenge.

Opening Celebration Saturday 18th July 10.30am-12noon Hackney Museum

Join us for the opening and have your free family portrait taken with The Garden School photographers Jack and Sam. Refreshments will be served.

This exhibition has been created as part of Re:present programme and will be part of UK Disability History Month 2015 focusing in on disability and representation within the media and film.

Create your own time capsule… Hackney Museum Family Art Day 8th April 2015

I am a geek about most things… especially history. I can recall many a happy hour spent creating project books about The Tudors and historic architecture as a child.

Now much of my work allows me to live my passion sharing with others how much history can inform the now & our futures… & hopefully inspire a whole new generations of fellow geeks!
