OUT OF CONTEXT
Out Of Context campaigns for social change through photography and works effectively in partnership with YoundMinds, PhotoVoice, The David Lynch Foundation, Centrepoint and Free Arts NYC
Whilst pursuing a career in photography Lorraine founded Out Of Context, a not-for-profit social enterprise with a mission to raise the awareness of mental health issues and to promote universal support. Her former husband is musician Adam Ant who has suffered publicly with manic depression — which has ignited Lorraine’s relentless determination to foster support in mental health awareness, beginning with children and young people.
Out Of Context was set up initially as an International Anti-Stigma photography campaign featuring people in the public eye doing things that make them happy.
The campaign debuted with an exhibition at Getty Images Gallery, London in 2010 including names such as Christian Slater, Minnie Driver, Dita Von Teese and Richard Branson.
PROJECT FEELING GOOD
Feeling Good the exhibition is a collection of images taken by people in the public eye on the theme of something that simply makes them feel good.
The project’s aim is to raise awareness of positive approaches to mental health.
The exhibition took place at Getty Images Gallery, London, 10th – 19th October 2013.
All of the profits from the print sales will go directly to The David Lynch Foundation UK.
Prints can be purchased via the link below.
Project Feeling Good is currently being developed, please get in touch regarding collaboration and sponsorship opportunities.
Lorraine collaborates with street artist Zoe Grace to form ‘Muther’
Muther recycles & decorates things and makes them beautiful. They are then photographed before leaving them on the street. Signs represent authority in our lives. They are everywhere, telling us what to do. They are intrinsically negative and their work highlights this by showing us how noticeable and how much of an impact messages of optimism, positivity and love have in a grey, urban environment.
