8) Mishka Henner & Liz Lock Photography

Mishka and Liz’s current photography projects have addressed community issues.

BORDERLAND - The cultural / community division in Manchester's Oldham.

I love these individual profile photographs. They are so simple, so ordinary however as a series can create a strong message. I find it powerful when the person looks directly into the camera.

In 2007 Mishka and Liz spent two months working with young carers in East manchester. At first they saw them as heros or victims but as they got closer they saw how sense of obligation and responsibility were qualities not limited to adults.

The written personal testimonials along side the images really give the message power and emotion.
