Shevcenko’s Play Your Part for Ukraine campaign shot by Hamish BROWN c/o JSR AGENCY
Shevcenko’s Play Your Part for Ukraine campaign shot by Hamish Brown Support the millions of innocent people caught up in the unfolding crisis in Ukraine. Photographer Hamish Brown shot Ukrainian football coach Andriy Shevcenko as part of his fundraising initiative – “Play Your Part” – looking to raise £2 million for a number of charities.

The just giving page says: “As the world watches in horror as events unfold in Ukraine, it’s hard to comprehend the devastating impact this conflict is having on the civilian population. Women, men and children caught in heavy fighting and continuous airstrikes have been forced to flee their homes with only the possessions they can carry. Countless families have been torn apart and lives destroyed.

Now refugees are facing an uncertain future, surviving in sub-zero temperatures without basic amenities. There is an urgent need for food, water, shelter and medical assistance. By working together we can provide this desperately needed help. By uniting and each lending our support we can help ease the suffering of these innocent people. Please #PlayYourPart and give what you can.”

Arnhel’s image of ‘Richard the Postman’ features in the book – Hold Still  – published by the National Portrait Gallery. “We invited people of all ages to submit a photographic portrait, taken in a six-week period during May and June, focussed on three core themes – Helpers and Heroes, Your New Normal and Acts of Kindness.  Over 31,000 submissions were received from across the country, with entrants ranging from 4 to 75 years-old. From these, a panel of judges selected 100 portraits, assessing the images on the emotions and experiences they conveyed.” As part of the launch, contributors to the collection are leaving books in places that gave them hope during the lockdown. Arnhel left his copy in St.Mary’s church on Putney Bridge. The first person to pick up the book was none other than Warrick Woodhouse, one of the four founders of Getty Images!

I love to see the absurd in the everyday' - Arnhel De Serra’s work is multi-layered, being comical, disruptive, political and colourful. At heart, he is nosey and curious about other people’s business. He loves to see the absurd in the everyday. His eye is constantly roving and casting around for opportunities – why make it up when the real world is so rich with potential? See more of Arnhel’s work here © // 5 files show complete blog

GQ UK Men of the Year Cover – Marcus Rashford by Hamish BROWN c/o JSR AGENCY
Hamish Brown shot British GQ Magazine’s 23rd annual Men of the Year 2020 award winner Marcus Rashford cover. A really worthy winner!  The editorial reads:

“in a world on its knees come the people determined to make a stand. And the GQ Men Of The Year Awards, in its 23rd year, has provided us with an opportunity to celebrate the people who made the world a better place over the past 12 months, when we’ve needed them most.”

“Twenty-three-year-old Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford used his platform for good, too, taking to Twitter during the Premier League shutdown to campaign for free school meals for starving children over the summer holidays. After forcing a u-turn from Boris Johnson, he has been the best kind of thorn in the side of the Conservative government ever since. ”
