Faces in Focus’s second exhibition endeavours to raise money for, and raise awareness of, mental health. Our open call to photographers asked them to submit work based on one theme: ‘MIND’ – a unifying theme that has produced a fantastically diverse and engaging body of photography. The finalists, selected by a panel of industry judges – Kimberly Hoang (Guardian), Joanna Vestey (Award winning photographer), Stephen Cunningsworth (Reuters), Patrick Di Cole (Verbatim/Getty), Kate Edwards (Guardian) – will have their work exhibited, with their prints sold in a limited edition in support of our chosen mental health organisation: Head Talks.

Every one of us will have our lives altered by mental illness at some point in our life, whether it affects you directly or someone you’re close to. Head Talks believe there is no single path to mental wellbeing, it’s about finding out what works for you, and this can be helped through information, inspiration and discussion.
By hosting short talks with speakers who have struggled with and met the challenge of mental illness, as well as those with a keen interest in the mind, Head Talks wants to enable each of us to put together a personal toolbox to manage our mental wellbeing and keep us mentally fit.
They have had everyone from psychiatrists, yogis, authors, meditation experts, politicians and nutritionists who, by bringing these thoughts and discussions into the open, aim to help lift the stigma that surrounds mental illness.
