As part of my work with the St Albans Council, I met the fine people of Cardboard Citizens and documented their work over a two week period which culminated in a theatre performance. I mainly photographed their sessions, but was also commissioned to make a short promotional video to be played ahead of their stage performance.

What Cardboard Citizens aims to do is incredible to watch, fostering a friendly and safe environment in which people can open up and perform for the first time in front of others. I took part in one or two sessions too to get acquainted with the other participants, and it definitely has an immediate effect.
