Helen Haile is currently a second year photography student at Kensington and Chelsea College.
Helen’s pictures of a Priest at a local alternative church were on display as part of a photography exhibition held at The College’s Chelsea centre as part of London’s Nour Festival.
The subject of the exhibition was ‘Guardians’, and Helen chose to photograph a priest because she felt that they act as guardians of the community.
Helen, originally from Eritrea, said, ‘both my grandfathers were priests, and back home the priest plays an important part in village life. They are regarded as someone who you can go to to discuss your problems and help solve them.
Michael Clarke is a deaf student studying photography at Kensington and Chelsea College.
For the Guardian’s project, Michael photographed hand sign, all of which can be interpreted as the word ‘guardian’.
