Every two minutes someone goes missing in the UK. The charity Missing People’s exhibition features a poignant collection of photographs of families with missing loved ones, taken by renowned photographer James O Jenkins and in support of their Home for Christmas Appeal. Each image features a different family standing by their front door, symbolising the hopes and fears experienced by all of those who continue to wait for their missing parent, sibling, son or daughter to come home. The exhibition gives members of the public the opportunity to stand with these families, by sharing messages of hope and supporting the charity’s annual Home for Christmas Appeal.
James O Jenkins is a London based photographer working for a wide variety of clients and publications. He has exhibited widely and in 2013 published his first book ‘United Kingdom’, a visual study of traditional annual UK customs.
The charity Missing People are a lifeline 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, bringing missing adults and children home to their loved ones and providing emotional and practical support to those still in limbo. By visiting the St Martin-in-the-Fields exhibition and supporting the charity’s Home for Christmas appeal, you too will be a lifeline to missing people and their families this Christmas.
