The Trust has been working with students from Woolwich Poly over the last year on a photography project called Thamesmead Places and Faces.
The project involved a small group of post-16 students working with professional photographer Paul Sanders to study the basics of photo composition and to produce a portfolio of images depicting Thamesmead through their eyes.
The best of the images, of which there were many, have been incorporated into a short film backed by music chosen by the students; ‘I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire' by 1940s band The Ink Spots and which can be viewed, with a selection of stills, on the Trust's website here.
The students, Amrit Kaur, Charlie Beattie, Connor Isaacs, George Coward and Joe Perkins used the most basic of equipment; disposable cameras with fixed lenses to produce some quite outstanding results.
Paul said: “By commissioning this photography project Trust Thamesmead and Woolwich Poly have given these inspirational young people a springboard to further enhance their future careers. The confidence shown is reflected in the quality of their photography work.
“It has been a privilege tutoring these future professionals and I am sure they will all make a positive mark on this world”.
