Scarlet Page, music photographer and daughter of Jimmy Page the famous Led Zeppelin guitarist began her life surrounded by music and musicians. She completed a degree in photography and then embarked on what has proved to be a very successful career photographing great rock names including The Foo Fighters, The Black Crowes, The Rolling Stones, The Stereophonics and The Red Hot Chili Peppers to name but a few. After fifteen years in the business she managed to finally photograph Jimmy Page ‘officially’ for a Sunday paper which resulted in her idea of taking portraits of other guitar legends. Scarlet explains, “I really wanted to do a charity project and Teenage Cancer Trust, with its incredible musical pedigree, and the amazing work it does, seemed ideal. I’ve been shooting now for over a year, and I’m not going to stop just yet”.
Teenage Cancer Trust is the only charity dedicated solely to improving the quality of life for young people aged between 13 and 24 who are diagnosed with cancer, believing every young person with cancer should to have access to specialist support specifically devised for their age group, bringing sufferers together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them, no matter where they live.
