40 Faces of St Gemma's Hospice
26 Jun 2018 - 23 Sep 2018
Many of us will access support from a hospice in our lifetime, either for ourselves or a loved one. But do we really know what they do? Discover the truth about hospice care at this powerful exhibition.
The unique stories of 40 patients, families, staff, volunteers and fundraisers have been captured to tell the story of St Gemma's Hospice in its 40th Anniversary Year. Each portrait has been photographed by the fantastic Olivia Hemingway, who specialises in portraits of people with a natural, relaxed style.
The powerful series demonstrates strong feelings of hope, love, happiness, humour and bravery. Whether you have a strong relationship with St Gemma's Hospice or know nothing about it, this exhibition is a chance to meet some of the people behind your local hospice.
