It is hard to think of better role models and partners for the anti bullying campaign than the Brownlees.  Their achievements, their numerous Olympic and World Championship medals would be enough but the site of Alistair carrying Jonny across the line at the recent World Championships in Mexico took them to a new level of heroism – not to mention altruism and brotherly love.  It was the best possible example, living up to the anti bullying slogan “Be a Buddy, Not a Bully.”  Though Alistair is typically self deprecating when talking about the moment, “If I had sprinted past him, it would have been much worse. Plus, my mum wouldn’t have been happy with that.”

Launching with National Anti-Bullying Week, the CN initiative encourages kids and young people to “Be a Buddy, Not a Bully” and aims to raise awareness and empower young people to take positive action against bullying.

Liam Arthur shot High Content magazine’s story featuring the new range of bags by Swedish designers Sandqvist.  The online magazine partnered the launch of the Sandqvist Women’s AW16 range at London Fashion week at their flagship store in Soho.

Alice described the plan, “we created a set and shot the story amongst the rich colours of jungle leaves and flora to enhance the beauty and moodiness of the prints on the clothes.”

In November 2014 Liam Arthur traveled to The West Bank to help pick olives and to photograph the people there who live their ordinary lives against an extraordinary back ground of sectarianism and strife.  The result is ‘Occupied – Portraits of The West Bank’ a gentle but powerful set of images that reveal the everyday life that lies behind the drama and the violence of the news feeds.  The pictures are moving because they capture moments of normalness, kids go to school and play football,  farmers pick olives and tend goats.  But it is all against the unseen but ever present background of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

‘Occupied – Portraits of The West Bank’ is currently featured on the photo mag website Of The Land and Us together with an article by Liam about his journey and how he created the project.

With the start of the 2015-2016 Premier League season this weekend, Liam Arthur celebrates with his personal project on kids football.

He photographed the football kids of the Priory Park Football Club in north London at the end of last season and plans to continue the work in the new term.  His fresh images really capture the enthusiasm, energy, the pure joy and fun of the kids game.

Nepal was devastated by a powerful and violent earthquake on 25th April this year.  It was a disaster on an epic scale, nearly 9000 dead, thousands made homeless, towns and villages flattened.  Liam Arthur was among the hundreds of volunteers that flew to the stricken country to give help in the aftermath.  Working for the NGO Shelterbox in the dual roles of aid worker and photographer he helped provide shelter for people whose homes had been destroyed and, in his photographs, recorded their stories and their situation.  The images here are some of the people that he met while distributing aid to one of the worst hit areas east of Katmandu.

Liam is adamant about the importance of the role of the photographer in this situation.  “As a photographer my role is to document the disaster and bring back stories and media that describe the situation and the people affected. There is no brief as such except to provide material that can be used by the organisation to publicise the situation on the ground and the efforts to help. We often have a unique view and access – as the second part of my role is to help facilitate the importation and distribution of aid to the affected communities. Being closely involved with the people affected gives you an element of trust and understanding with them, often allowing you to get under the surface, under an exterior often toughened by the catastrophic events that have claimed so many lives, to the real feelings underneath.

Being sensitive to the people that you are photographing in disaster situations is vital not only for them but also for the medium of photography to be trusted across the world as a method of revealing a peoples need for help without exploiting those that you are trying to help in the first place. Often it is hard to avoid the cliched images that we so often see, but the more that you talk to the affected communities the more you tend to see the strength and resilience of the human condition.  I would hope a little of this strength shows in the portraits of people who have suffered greatly at the hands of the unforgiving mountains that they inhabit.

They are not a community to be pitied but one of courage and strength, to be supported and helped to build back stronger and better. Unfortunately the disaster here has only begun, with the monsoon rain coming followed by a harsh winter in mountains that were prone to landslides before the earthquakes. Images have the power to keep us engaged in a world who’s attention span is ever shortening. It is important that the stories keep getting told. It is important that we see what needs to be done so that we can empathise and support the people that so generously gave us their stories to tell. But most importantly it is important that we do it with integrity.”
