Time to See photography exhibition opens to the public in London

This weekend sees the launch of the Trust’s photography exhibition, Time to See, which will be on display at London Bridge City Pier until Friday 4 May.

Five multi-award-winning photographers – Poulomi Basu, Sam Faulkner, Adam Ferguson, Ashley Gilbertson and Andrew Quilty – visited seven countries around the world – Australia, Fiji, India, Kenya, Nigeria, Pakistan and Uganda – to shine a light on the lives of those affected by avoidable blindness and the pioneers in eye health who spend every day doing everything in their power to prevent loss of eyesight.

80% of people who are blind do not need to be. Time to See shows people from different countries, communities and cultures, of different ages, genders and beliefs who all have one thing in common: their lives have been blighted by blindness which could, and should, have been avoided.

The projects they recorded are all funded by The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust and Standard Chartered’s Seeing is Believing Initiative, who both work with a mandate to tackle avoidable blindness across the Commonwealth and around the world.  By working with governments and partners in selected countries, they are seeking to bring vision to everyone, everywhere.

The free exhibition will be on display from 14 April – 4 May 2018.
