Founded by filmmaker and photographer Cindy Sasha, the Shine Camera Club inspires children from low socio-economic backgrounds between the ages of 8-10 years to dream big and pursue photography.

Using analogue/film cameras, the children are taught the basic skills of photography at the Shine Merton Saturday School, and they are encouraged to stop, look at and snap the world they live in through their own eyes.

 “I never had the opportunity as a child to explore photography or to understand that it could be a career. Growing up in a working-class background to dream was impossible and opportunities didn’t present themselves like today. I want to make sure this camera club inspires and allow children to dream again.” – Cindy Sasha, Founder, Shine Camera Club

The children have explored portraiture, still life and street photography over the course of four weeks, learning about cameras, lighting, famous photographers and discussing the power of an image. Respected curator, photography editor and former Picture Editor at The Observer Magazine Jennie Ricketts has selected the best work, which will be exhibited this summer at prominent Wimbledon department store Elys, during the tennis championships from 24 June – 16 July.

 “I’m really pleased to be involved with Shine Camera Club which will provide an opportunity for a group of children, who may not otherwise have the chance, to discover the world of photography and learn how to use a camera.  My hope is, at the very least, the exhibition of their work will allow the children to enjoy the experience of having their images displayed for an audience, but also that we may reveal a potential future talented photographer among them.” – Jennie Ricketts, Curator

Through Cindy’s trusting relationship with Kristina Burton, Project and Development Manager at Mitcham Town Community Trust, Shine Camera Club provides a safe learning space for children to feel inspired through creativity and to build their confidence to pursue photography in later life.
