Metro support Kathryn Prescott - 'What Makes Us Care?'

18 September 2013
Metro is delighted to support Kathryn Prescott, London born photographer and actress, in her first solo exhibition ‘What Makes Us Care?’ which opened this week at St. Martin in the Field's Crypt Gallery in Trafalgar Square, London. The project focuses on, explores and challenges the way in which modern society desensitises the homeless and individuals in need, on the street.

After spending several years acting and working as a portrait photographer she became aware of the strong reaction many people have when they recognise a face from the television. This combined with her interest in the issues surrounding homelessness was the inspiration for her project with all profits from her limited edition prints sold, split between The Big Issue Foundation and Centrepoint homeless young person's charity.

Kathryn made a decision to use recognisable faces (Klariza Clayton, Craig Roberts, Sophie Wu, Jay Brown, Megan Prescott) from film and TV, looking destitute and broken as models for her images, with the aim to spark a sense of familiarity with the viewer and hence encourage them to take a second look.

Kathryn comments; “The idea is that this change in reaction will make the viewer wonder what that change in reaction really was, why suddenly they need to take a second look and why this person's face causes them more of a reaction than would do a homeless person or runaway they passed on the street.”

Metro produced all twenty black & white resin and C Type prints for the show which continues until 13th October 2013.
