A project that steams from a personal experience is always one that means the most and stays close to the heart, years ago whilst on a family holiday my eyes were opened into the world of child labour, I couldn't believe this was still such a problem but also knew as a photographer I could help by documenting this and telling the stories, so to team up with Goodweave in India early this year was truly amazing, it opened my eyes to the positive change that is happening.
This young girl has the opportunity to an education, thanks to GoodWeave, and it’s not only child labour that GoodWeave wants to end - they want to improve everything that is encompassed under this bracket, such as children not being fed, being abused and working and living in extremely dangerous conditions. With such a wide focus, an essential part of the GoodWeave philosophy is knowing their whole supply chain from beginning to the very end, including the stockists that they sell their products to, to ensure that no child labour is involved at any stage of the production. They work towards bringing full visibility to the supply chain, including the smaller hidden stages.
So here's to telling even more positive stories in 2020 #photographer #photography #travelphotography #streets #portraits #portraitphotography #fujixpro2 #fuji #documentaryphotography #india #school #education #goodweave @thestudio_m @mattporteous @submarinecreative @tamsinraine @goodweave_intl
