Newcastle Hospitals Charity were delighted to officially launch an exhibition from renowned photographer Johannah Churchill’s new series ‘NHS Darkroom’ as part of our Arts Programme, with the kind support of The University of Sunderland on 10 May 2023.
The project has involved Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust staff, Abbas, Gerry, Shaden and Yann, having their portraits taken across Trust sites as well as sessions in a photography darkroom, where they have been able to develop their own images, which they took with 35mm film.
Katie Hickman, Arts Programme Manager for Newcastle Hospitals Charity said “We are so grateful to Johannah and the Sunderland University staff for dedicating their time, energy and enthusiasm into this project, and helping to make Trust staff and their work visible. We hope everyone enjoys the displays in the Freeman, and RVI hospitals.”
You can view this long-term exhibition on Level 3 of the Leazes Wing at the RVI, or Level 2 at the Freeman hospital on the corridor leading to the Northern Centre for Cancer Care.
Keep a look out for future announcements and opportunities to be involved in this ongoing project!
