YOUNG carers have stepped in front of the camera to give an insight into the lives they lead.

Professional photographer Nina Agnew helped members of Wired Young Carers to use their camera phones in a creative way.

Nina introduced the young people to different skills to help them capture the best photograph.

Clare Mead, support worker at Wired Young Carers, said: "The photography project was fun and engaging in a way that gave young carers respite from their extensive duties at home, and also allowed them to take a creative look at their role and their lives.

“They were able to gain new skills in creating interesting photos with thought and value.”

James Goodison, outreach development officer at Culture Warrington added: “It was great to be involved in such a rewarding project.

“This project has enabled the young carers to learn new skills and look at life differently through a lens.”

The project followed on from The Hidden Portrait exhibition, which took place in 2016 at the Pyramid.

It showed how young lives were affected up and down the country by those caring for family members at home.

Photographs are now available to view online.
