Genesis are proud to support The Positive View Foundation by teaching about producing photographs as prints. Positive View visitors have returned to Genesis to learn about the production of photographic prints. Our very own Creative Director, Mark Foxwell shared knowledge on this topic and gave a tour of our facilities.
The aim of The Positive View Foundation is to bring a focus to disadvantaged youngsters through an introduction to photography and film that allows them to move out of the vicious circle of violence, drugs and gang related estate life.
About Positive View:
Positive View was initially created in 1994 by Andrew Page as his personal project to raise funds for the Chickenshed theatre in North London where his daughter was a member. To do this he organised a major photography exhibition featuring international vintage and contemporary photography donated by some of the world’s most respected photographers. The two month exhibition was held at the Saatchi Gallery in London and the exhibits were later auctioned by Sotheby’s with the proceeds going directly to Chickenshed.
