South East London Photography (SELPh)

SELPh was launched in November 2011. The group was founded by Billy Gazard, Wojtek Wojcik and Anthony Wallace in association with the HERON Network and funding from the South London and the Maudsley Charity. The project initially used photography to talk about everyday experiences but now uses a variety of media to highlight experiences and health inequalities.

SELPh’s mission is to use a variety of media so that marginalised groups have the opportunity to represent themselves and voice their opinions to contribute to a dialogue on health and well-being.

SELPh 2019

In summer 2019 SELPh ran a course of six workshops, with weekly themes relating to physical health, identity, community, dreams, and mental health generally. This event exhibited photos produced by the group members, who each brought their own unique perspective to these facets of mental health. It was accompanied by a collection of poems and photos from our partner project Spoken Word in the Community Hubs (S.W.I.T.C.H), which explores how to increase arts participation.
