Photography exhibition celebrating 25 years of women’s ordination
Here Am I is a remarkable photography exhibition which gives a unique and intimate insight into the daily lives and work of 12 Church of England female priests in the Diocese of Southwark which covers South London and East Surrey.
Commissioned by the Bishop of Southwark, the Rt. Revd Christopher Chessun to celebrate 25 years of women’s ordination and photographed by award-winning social-documentary photographer Jim Grover, the set of 50 plus black and white images will be on display in Croydon’s flagship cultural arts centre for three months until April 2020.
Jim Grover is well known for his exhibitions in London capturing London life. This is his fourth and the previous two, Of things not seen (2016) and Windrush: Portrait of a Generation (2018) were highly acclaimed. Windrush: Portrait of a Generation attracted 20,000 visitors at t and was also exhibited at Fairfield Halls. Jim documents, through words and images, stories about people and their communities which are often untold and unseen.
