Exhibition in aid of domestic abuse survivors to launch in King's Lynn
This October, Norfolk photographer Keith Osborn and domestic abuse charity, Pandora Project are launching an exhibition to celebrate women’s lives.
Taking place in St Nicholas’ Chapel on Saturday, October 2 and Sunday October 3, the theme is ‘Free As A Bird’ and will focus on the positive experiences of life for women who survived abuse, inspired by the words of survivors.
The Pandora Project provides vital support services to women and children affected by domestic abuse in West and North Norfolk.
The exhibition is free and open for the public to attend.
Mr Osborn said: "What interested me, from the point of view of the imagery that surrounds this subject, is that it almost always focuses on the experience of abuse, and not its survival. There appears to be very little imagery that is positive and celebrates the fact that women do survive domestic abuse and go on to live fulfilling and happy lives.
“These photographs are intended to encourage women, victims of domestic abuse, that they can survive. They can be them. They are enough. There is a future: a future where they can truly be as free as a bird."
During the weekend there will be a silent auction of two prints with proceeds going to support Pandora Project. There will also be an exhibition catalogue for sale with proceeds towards Pandora Project.
The exhibition will be open on Saturday, between 10am and 3pm and Sunday, from 10am to 2pm.
Mr Osborn is a Norfolk-based photographer who creates commercial and lifestyle photography, with a passion in providing services to support small and medium businesses, community and non-profit organisations.
Pandora Project are a domestic abuse charity, based in King’s Lynn supporting women and children in West Norfolk and North Norfolk.
