I Want to Live
I Want to Live is a project run in collaboration with suicide prevention charity Maytree. The project comprises a number of interviews and photographic portraits of Maytree’s volunteer workforce, investigating what brings people to volunteer with those in suicidal crisis, volunteers’ own mental health experiences and the impact of suicide. Alongside these images are a series of photographs taken at the house, highlighting the liminal space where significant change often takes place and the traces that Maytree’s many guests have left behind.
The photographs and interviews initially formed part of a 4 month exhibition at the Free Space Project (London) and a series of arts workshops focusing on suicide and bereavement. The exhibition will now tour across galleries and clinical institutions.
