Gallery - Progress Estate Photowalk by Eye4change

Landmarks is a project by Eye4change, a charitable organisation providing unique photography activities that combine technology with creativity to stimulate social change and positive social inclusion.

With the support of the Big Lottery Fund, 100 older people of diverse backgrounds and abilities were given the opportunity to use a digital camera as a tool for self-expression, storytelling and a means to connect and share a sense of belonging with their local community as they explored local neighbourhoods and outdoor spaces.

Through a series of urban photowalks, Landmarks serves to transcend language barriers, improve health and wellbeing through physical and mental activity and honours what new and existing communities have in common, while celebrating the value of diversity. 

The images below are from a recent (late 2013) photo walk in our own Progress Estate, and really demonstrates what a stunning area it is.

Eye4Change hope to run more photo walks in 2014.  For more information please contact:
