A great three days at the Latitude Festival this year – my project was to photograph families having fun and enjoying all that this this family-friendly festival has to offer.
I’m a family photographer so I thought it would be perfect to document the event from a family perspective – to show families having fun over the three days: listening and dancing away to the bands, relaxing & playing in the kids areas, enjoying themselves at the family campsite, etc.
There is a book available with a selection of the photos. Prints and digital downloads can also be purchased.
Here’s a full preview of the book (the link to purchase is below the preview):
To view all the photos, and to order prints and digital downloads of your photos, just click on the following link:
All profits from the sale of the book, prints, digital downloads, etc will go to Manzini Youth Care (see below for info).
Manzini Youth Care provide accommodation, education, support and care to marginalised and young people at risk through poverty in Swaziland, many of whom are living on the streets.
The number of vulnerable and at risk children in Swaziland continues to grow, as the HIV/AIDS pandemic spreads and the economy suffers due to the worldwide economic downturn.
The economic outlook for Swaziland is not looking hopeful. The rate of parentless families due to death by disease continues to increase. Swaziland continues to have the highest HIV/AIDS rate among all the nations at 28-42% depending on the source. It is estimated that there are nearly 50,000 orphans in the country and another 50,000 vulnerable children at risk.
This is an organisation that works, and makes sure that contributions are used to best effect – you may have seen Eswatini Kitchen products in Oxfam, that is one of their income generation projects.
