The Skyway Club is an amazing group to work with. Based in Ballynafeigh Community Development Association the group works with adults with learning diffifculties and physical or mental disabilities on many different projects. I’ve been working with them for many years now and every time the group amaze me with their hard work and energy.
Our latest project was the photographic exhibition “That’s So Me!”, an exhibition featuring large scale portraits of each of the members for a month long display at the ulster Hall group space. The idea behind this portraits was to really capture the personality and quirks that make each person unique and to really capture their great qualities. After a workshop to think of ideas we set up a studio with a stripped back black backdrop so all the focus was on the subjects. The guys were amazing in front of the camera, really giving it their all and I’m so proud of the results.
I love working with the Men’s Sheds as you all know from how often I mention them on facebook and recently I had the pleasure of doing a ten week course with the lads at Colin Men’s Shed. Part of Colin Neighbourhood Partnership, the guys are so enthusiastic and creative and the work they made was truly excellent. All beginners at the start, they worked incredibly hard and we had a great time learning about photography and creating an exhibition. We displayed all the wok at the CNP building in Colin Allotments and now you can check it all out online here too.
