Officially launched at a Haringey Recovery Service photography event and exhibition, the book ‘Clean Visions’ is entirely photographed, designed and edited by service-users on the abstinence-based day programme
The book also documents a photographic walk through Tottenham Marshes.
Clean Visions is available to purchase at £35 and all proceeds will be used to support service-user projects at the Haringey Recovery Service. Contact us firstname.lastname@example.org to get your copy.
About the Recovery Photography Project
The Recovery Photography Project has been running since 2012 and is now integrated into Haringey Recovery Service’s programme. The project encourages budding photographers, who are service-users of Haringey’s drug, alcohol and recovery services, to look at their environment on themed photographic walks and try an often completely new medium for expression. Learning to document their own lives and that of their community through photography helps to increase participant’s confidence, self-esteem and motivation: all essential resources for people during such a challenging, life-changing time.
About the photography blog
Our photography blog is curated by photography group members at the Haringey Recovery Service.
An integral part of recovery from drug and alcohol abuse is to show that there is more to life than addiction. The blog intends to avoid the typically voyeuristic and inherently sad photographs of people in recovery that are so ubiquitous. Instead the project is designed to encourage and empower people in recovery to share their world by documenting it the way they see it; with contemplation and mindfulness.
