The exhibition ‘Wishing For More’ opens at The Hart Gallery, 18 White Hart Street, Mansfield from 28th November to 12th December.

HumanCamera presents an exhibition of photographs taken by local people, reflecting on their personal experiences to represent themselves and tell the story of how they view their place within the local environment.

The exhibition showcases the work of an intergenerational group of adults who took part in a creative photography workshop in Mansfield over a five week period, providing an insight into the feelings and aspirations of people representative of the wider community. The project was funded by Nottinghamshire County Council.

The focus of the project was to help people express themselves through photography, and communicate their ideas for positive change through the use of images. This project has been a part of Mansfield’s ongoing creative development.

HumanCamera CIC is a social enterprise based in Nottinghamshire. HumanCamera uses photography to promote positive change through community projects and photography workshops that show people how images can be used to represent themselves and tell their story. They have held a number of exhibitions in and around Nottingham showcasing the work of local people.
