I Want to Live is a project run by photographer Daniel Regan and suicide respite centre Maytree. The project comprises a number of interviews and photographic portraits of Maytree’s volunteer workforce, investigating what brings people to volunteer with those in suicidal crisis, volunteers’ own mental health experiences and the impact of suicide. Alongside these images are a series of photographs taken at the house, highlighting the liminal space where significant change often takes place and the traces that Maytree’s many guests have left behind.
The photographs and interviews will form part of a 4 month exhibition at the Free Space Project (London), during which Daniel will be running a number of arts workshops focusing on suicide and bereavement.
If you would like to attend the launch on June 21st (6pm — 9pm), you will need to RSVP.
