In Conversation: Through Our Lens — Impressions Gallery

Join us in the gallery to hear some of the Through Our Lens group talking about the role photography has played in these unprecedented times, and what the experience of being part of the project has meant to them.

While many of us are familiar with the impact of school closures and working from home, first hand stories of young peoples’ pandemic experience have largely gone unnoticed. With mentoring from artist Carolyn Mendelsohn, who quickly responded to the need for community and collaboration, isolated young people were encouraged to tell their personal stories through photography. Mendelsohn taught them how to use photography as a tool to document their experiences and help make sense of their changing worlds.

Through Our Lens offers a vital window into how the young people adapted and grew through an incredibly challenging time.

This is a fantastic opportunity to hear directly from the young artists about their work in the exhibition.

All appropriate government guidance will be followed. Limited places available, to book your free ticket please contact Impressions Gallery at or call 01274 737843 during opening hours.
