St Peters Hospice have just launched their new campaign to recruit volunteers during National Volunteers Week 1st – 7th June.
In April I was asked by Volunteer Coordinator, Jenny Brothwell to photograph a series of scenes depicting the duties volunteers would undertake within the organization. Nothing too unusual in the brief for a freelance photographer until she mentioned that the scenes would be created using her childrens toys and items from the shops themselves.
I immediately started thinking about the photographic work of Slinkachu which you can check out here… http://slinkachu.com/
Sold on such a fantastic idea I couldn’t wait to get started. The photography itself was great fun and you have to check yourself when your worried that your Captain Scarlett isn’t in proportion to Scott Tracy of the Thunderbirds or does Scooby Doo actually work well in conjunction with Po from the Teletubbies in a Toy Department scene!
And after all the 'hard work', brought to you in conjunction with Blue Tack and strong cups of tea (two sugars), is the final artwork. Currently being used in their Bristol shops for an A1 poster display and postcards.
