Caitlin Chescoe is a recent 2015 graduate from Arts University Bournemouth who studied BA (Hons) Photography.
Volunteers are present in every area of society, yet their contributions largely go unacknowledged.
My work is the outcome of my engagement with a number of charities and organisations that rely heavily on the time volunteers provide to support their community and the environment.
Each individual has their own particular reasons for committing and I aimed to provide an insight into the chosen lifestyle of these ‘hidden’ members of the community. I have chosen to document a combination of staged and brief encounters with the volunteers whilst they were engaged in a moment of reflection.
