Someone’s Daughter
London & Nottingham • Spring 2021
Someone’s Daughter
an historic photo exhibition and silent auction of portraits documented by 15 contemporary leading photographers of 15 activists in the criminal justice system, and 15 leading women
‘Photography can change the world. 
It can empower its subjects, tell their stories and present them in a way that shows who they really are. When it’s successful it will touch the audience and give them the most incredible insight into the human condition.’  
- Rankin 2020

Through the work of the world’s leading photographers, we will change the lens and shift the focus to clarify how we look at these women to highlight that which connects us, rather than separates us. The fight for criminal justice reform for women is a long and difficult one that requires systemic changes in legal policy and societal opinions. We must remember that at the heart of the fight are individual women; strong, complex, and creative. Each one unique. Each one Someone’s Daughter. 
 
Participating photographers will be assigned 2 women to photograph and will use their unique eye and artistic styles in their portraits. The resulting powerful images will form an historic collection of works, documenting women at the heart of justice, the arts, philosophy, academia and activism, to be exhibited throughout London. From the heart of creativity at Photo London, within the exhibition halls of a leading cultural institution at the National Justice Museum, to the cradle of our national democracy at the Palace of Westminster, these works will embody disparate lives and a profound legacy. The individual works will be auctioned to raise funds for The View Magazine to continue our fight for women of the criminal justice system. 
 
Someone’s Daughter is made possible through the gracious generosity of Rankin and other photographers and The National Justice Museum.
