The Martin James Foundation are proud to introduce the photo exhibition titled ‘Noor’, meaning light in Arabic. The exhibition was done in conjunction with Kate Green, a Birmingham based photographer and a team of staff in the Hope Centre, Jordan.
The Hope Centre is a comprehensive rehabilitation centre for children established by The Martin James Foundation in partnership with Arabian Medical Relief. Kate and the team of 10 staff including psychosocial, physio and speech therapists worked with the children and introduced ways in which cameras and creativity could be used to support their therapy sessions.
The exhibition was first held in New Street Station and will continue to be showcased at different venues in Birmingham before moving to other UK destinations. Below are some of the pictures taken by the children, including the little girl with the camera who the exhibition is named after ‘Noor’.
