Youth Unemployment (1981) © Ella Murtha
Thank you to everyone for the constant support and encouragement as I have shared my mams work.
For everyone that has asked about a book; together, we can make it happen!
30 days to raise 8K!!!!!
If enough people support the 'Youth Unemployment' Kickstarter campaign, your wish is my command!
'Youth Unemployment' is a collection of images taken from my mam Tish Murtha's 1981 project which is accompanied by her essay 'Youth Unemployment in the West End of Newcastle'.
Using my mams notes from the original exhibition, I can see her thoughts and selection process as she chose her favourite photograph's, and I have selected images that I feel she would be happy with. This book will be as authentic as it possibly can be without Tish's physical involvement.
Fresh from the success of the Kickstarter Colin Wilkinson ran for Jim Mortram's 'Small Town Inertia', I am over the moon to be working with Colin and Bluecoat Press on 'Youth Unemployment'.
