Take Five

Take Five: Each Amazing Breath. I was commissioned to cover an event at Rufford Abbey in Nottinghamshire where 125 remarkable young people aged 6–12 from eight local schools shared their experiences as ambassadors for a technique called Take Five – Stand Strong and Breathe. Drawing on elements of yoga and mindfulness, it helps them to control difficult emotions and help themselves and others with anger management and other issues. My photographs, taken mainly out of doors under dreadful weather conditions (I was amazed how the children shrugged off the relentless rain; fortunately my cameras also survived!), were used throughout the fascinating report below (designed by Glen Powell).
