In episode 17 UNP founder and curator Grant Scott is in his shed considering mentoring, advice and support for and within the photo community and the creation of a database of those willing to offer that support for free.
Plus this week London based photographer Jenny Lewis takes on the challenge of supplying Grant with an audio file no longer than 5 minutes in length in which she answer’s the question ‘What Does Photography Mean to You?’
Jenny Lewis grew up in, Essex and moved to Hackney over 20 years ago. She has made her living as an editorial photographer, but continues to pursue a range of personal projects. Many of which centre on her experience of living and working in East London. Alongside her project One Day Young, that captures mothers within the first 24 hours after having a baby, she has been photographing the network of creatives who live alongside her in the borough of Hackney. This body of work was published as Hackney Studios by Hoxton Mini Press in April 2017. http://jennylewis.net
