In line with Mental Health Awareness Week, the exhibition will take place from Wednesday 10th to Friday 19th May and will feature work from both amateur and professional photographers. The aim is to prompt discussion around the issues that men often feel too embarrassed to talk about and educate us around the limiting preconceptions of masculinity. Too often the pressures of behaving like a ‘man’ are damaging our ability to open up about our feelings and insecurities and the pictures displayed through this project hope to address this problem.
The exhibition will also raise money and awareness for CALM, a charity supported by Topman who are dedicated to preventing male suicide, the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. Check out some examples of submitted photos below and we’ll see you at the exhibition.
The Calm Photography Movement takes place 10th – 19th May 2017 at the Getty Images Gallery, 46 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8DX.
