PHOTOGRAPHY + POETRY is a colloboration between Refugee Resource Women’s Group, photographer Philippa James and poet Susanne Mundschenk.
Photography is more than taking a pretty picture, it provides an opportunity to look further, slow down, and to create, important now more than ever. Over the past six weeks, Philippa James has worked closely with The Women’s Group at Refugee Resource to create self portraits, at the same time Susanne Mundschenk has been working with the women to produce wonderful poetry of their experience. This on-line collaborative exhibition is launched today, for International Women’s Day 2021.
Oxford International Women’s Festival hosted a conversation with some of the women who took part in this project, including Refugee Resource, Susanne Mundschenk, and Philippa James. Recorded video below
Philippa created THE MOTHERHOOD PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS to empower mothers and women to embrace their creativity. We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to this exhibition, especially during these challenging times.
