Colleagues feature in virtual exhibition

Colleagues from across our charity have been featured in a virtual reality (VR) photography exhibition, created by Photographer, Tadhg Devlin, and Open Eye Gallery.

 ‘An Ecology of Care’ is an emotive series of photography highlighting the power of collective discussion and action from those with lived experiences in health and social care. Previously showcased in the Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool, the exhibition can now be viewed online, in a special VR display here.

Part of the exhibition, named ‘Bound/Frayed’, features people from across our charity, captured and presented by Photographer, Tadhg Devlin, through a year-long project.

Working with colleagues and people we support, Tadhg has created images which represent the experience of working in the care sector in some of the most challenging moments.

The photos also celebrate the everyday work carried out by our incredible workforce, to support people who access social care – something which is often hidden from the public.

These powerful portraits capture an important moment of resilience in our society, made during equally challenging times.

Community Integrated Care’s Director of Partnerships and Communities, John Hughes, said, “Tadgh’s work powerfully brings to life the crisis that engulfed the social care sector during the pandemic – creatively reflecting the thoughts, feelings and experiences of this moment of history. His work also makes visible the incredible passion, skill and impact of people who deliver social care. We hope it helps to reframe an understanding of the pandemic and the importance of the care sector.”
