A Northampton photographer is looking for local healthcare professionals to take part in a photo shoot.

Heloísa Quadros has joined a national campaign, the ‘2020 vision project’, that will see photographers across the country joining together to showcase Covid heroes.

The Arts Council funded project will see pictures of 600 healthcare workers compiled into an exhibition and a national book to commemorate their hard work and reflect on their dedication during the pandemic.

Northampton photographer Helosa Quadros is taking part in a national project to applaud healthcare workers.

Heloísa said: “When I heard about this project I thought ‘this is amazing’.

“As photographers, we are not doing anything properly at the moment so it’s good to do this to show the people behind the masks. We want to see some happy faces.

“This project is about capturing human connection and creating a meaningful healthcare tribute to the people behind the masks.

“The photographers will be assigned to capture the faces behind the masks to express the human story - not in hospitals or in uniform - but the person.

“The exhibitions will give the workers something to look forward to and a way to breathe a little bit after this craziness.”

As part of the project, Heloísa will complete a photo shoot with each healthcare volunteer and they will be offered a digital version of the photo.

Heloísa is looking for all kinds of healthcare professionals and hopes to begin shoots by mid-July.
