Shoalhaven residents have captured the meaning of life through the art of photography as part of Mental Health Awareness Week.
The exhibition was hosted by Grand Pacific Health’s Housing and Accommodation Support Initiative team and featured work from both clients and staff members.
Support coordinator Emilie Martin said giving people the opportunity to express what gave their lives meaning, often led to a more meaningful life overall.
“A flow on positive effect of the exhibition is that visitors have reflected on their own thoughts about what give them a meaningful life,” she said.
“Contributing to something that’s a genuine project has given the participants a real sesne of belonging and purpose.
Huskisson resident Glenn had his work displayed in he exhibition, and said he was pleased to be part of the project.
“I enjoyed thinking about what to take photos of and spending time in my favourite place,” he said.
Originally from Sydney, Glenn said he felt lucky to live in Huskisson, which is why he photographed the main street.
“It’s called ‘Husky at Night’ and it shows the town is just as nice at night as in the day time,” he said.
The exhibition will be held over two days from October 11 to 12.
