Exhibition: Restricted views – creative outlooks

1st-13th December | Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool

An innovative photography project by Novus learners from HMP Risley and HMP Thorn Cross is being showcased at Liverpool’s Open Eye Gallery.

Titled Restricted Views – Creative Outlooks, the exhibition will display the programme of work created during the project, reflecting the photographic collaboration between artists Hafsah Naib and Simon Bray and Novus learners.

Combining the skills of socially engaged photographers with the life experiences of both learners within prison settings and their families, the programme explored how photography and creativity can be used as a tool for self-expression, to enhance family relationships, an as a way of learning new skills.
