Anna worked very closely with The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust (QEDJT) on their landmark photography project Time to See. Time To See highlights the work of QEDJT, Standard Chartered’s Seeing is Believing initiative and their partners on reducing avoidable blindness for the 98 million people in the Commonwealth who are blind or have low vision. Time to See was created for advocacy and educational purposes to show the simple solutions available for 80% of those across the Commonwealth with avoidable blindness. The Time to See exhibition was presented to Her Majesty The Queen at a private viewing at St James’s Palace, London in October 2016. It was then shown at three different venues during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Malta which was attended by The Queen and all Heads of the 53 Commonwealth Governments.
Anna liaised with QEDJT, their partners, five award-winning photojournalists and the curator Cheryl Newman, to ensure powerful images were captured to help tell the story of QEDJT’s work. Anna helped QEDJT produce the exhibitions for St James’s Palace, the Commonwealth Health Ministers Meeting in Geneva and the three concurrent exhibitions at CHOGM in Malta. Time to See has also been exhibited at various private events including Australia House, London, the Houses of Parliament, London, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney and Standard Charted Bank, London. It was exhibited publicly for the first time at London Bridge City Pier for two weeks in April 2018.
The award-winning photojournalists Ashley Gilbertson, Poulomi Basu, Sam Faulkner, Andrew Quilty, and Adam Ferguson, travelled to India, Pakistan, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, Australia and Fiji to capture the inspiring work of QEDJT and their partners. www.timetosee.org
