This exhibition, Someone’s Daughter by The View Magazine, sets out to initiate reform of a failing system by use of photography by leading practitioners from the UK and abroad to capture the portraits of former prisoners, and placing them alongside professional women so that they can be seen in the same light as others in attempt to change how they are seen, and by doing so change the way justice is served.
Supported by esteemed artist Sir Anish Kapoor CBE, The View Magazine is a not-for-profit CIC, a social enterprise organisation, established by formerly imprisoned women. Its content is produced by women either serving sentences, on probation or those affected by the incarceration of women.
It provides advocacy for women within or after release from the system and leads campaigns for reform of the criminal justice system, taking advice from legal professionals, parliamentarians and others providing services for the women and their families.
Someone’s Daughter at Photo London is possible thanks to the generosity of Guernica 37 International Law Chambers, our venue sponsors. We are grateful to all our partners and especially to our photographers and our ‘daughters’ who have given so much of their time and their energy to this important campaign.
