Whether used for stills photography or filmmaking, a camera offers the user a unique opportunity to tell a story. Here at Wex, we recognise the value of those stories and believe they all deserve to be heard, as they provide an insight into the spectrum of human experiences lived across a nation of creative people.

Our #ChangeTheImage campaign showcases a selection of talented individuals from a variety of backgrounds, exploring the benefits of photography as a tool to provide therapy, raise awareness and drive social change.

Photographing Moon Festival, China Town
Sarabdeep (Sabby) Rai is a professional photographer and Sony shooter who works in and around Birmingham and London. She has spent a lot of her career mastering the art of low-light and night-time imagery. She takes photographs that are unapologetically beautiful and atmospheric. Her images of China Town showcase the incredible community who live and work in the area. This piece is supported by Sony UK and talks to how to accurately capture the traditions and culture associated with Moon Festival in China Town, London.

Capturing Community in Banglatown (Brick Lane)
Mohamed Abdulle is an internationally renowned photographer currently shooting with F1’s Lewis Hamilton. He is a Somali creative, born and raised in East London. His stunning street shots of local legends saw him rise to fame. He now works with brands such as Adidas and Meta, but East London will always be his home. We’ll be exploring the streets of Brick Lane and Whitechapel (Banglatown) to meet and capture some of the local heroes that call this cultural hub, a home. This piece is supported by Canon UK and talks to how to accurately capture the traditions and culture associated with the Bengali and Pakistani communities that reside here.

Photographing Notting Hill Carnival
Aneesa Dawoojee is a professional photographer who specialises in societal and community projects. With her family originating from Trinidad, her work at Notting Hill Carnival offers an inside perspective on the festivities and celebrations. Her images showcase an unapologetically beautiful community, celebrating their Caribbean roots. Whilst other communities participate in the Carnival, we will be focused on Aneesa’s experiences. This piece is supported by Fujifilm and talks to how to accurately capture the traditions and culture associated with Notting Hill Carnival, London.

Connecting Community & Culture through Photography
Pablo Allison is an award-winning, internationally renowned photographer focused on the Latinx community. He has created a power photographic series described as a love letter to the heart of the Mexican community. His work looks at control, displacement, freedom and migration, alongside other things.
