A PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAIT SERIES EXPLORING CHILDREN'S POSITIVE IMPACT FROM LOCKDOWN RAISING FUNDS FOR THE STARS APPEAL AND ACTION FOR CHILDREN'S COVID-19 CAMPAIGNS
BY SALISBURY PHOTOGRAPHER GEMMA BRUNTON
Between June and November 2020, Salisbury photographer Gemma Brunton photographed 112 of Salisbury's children, documenting how despite challenge and upheaval, they learned to embrace the positive side of lockdown and appreciate the everyday pleasures we take for granted.
It has been a project that will grow in significance in years and generations to come as the children of Salisbury grow up and reflect on how Coronavirus shaped them during this time of isolation and afterwards.
Over £5000 was raised for The Stars Appeal and Action for Children, both of which have crisis funds providing support for those affected by Covid-19.
A large format, limited edition hardback book was produced, each one signed and numbered with a copy presented to The Duchess of Cambridge, The Earl of Pembroke (patrons of the charities) and The Bishop of Salisbury to celebrate the 800the anniversary of Salisbury Cathedral.
