ALPHA is an exhibition by five award-winning photographers in aid of the charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably). CALM aims to prevent male suicide in the UK, and offers support to men who are living with depression or are in crisis.

The exhibition features work by renowned photographers such as Scarlet Page, whose portfolio includes Keith Richards, Robbie Williams and The Foo Fighters; and Jennifer Pattison, who scooped first prize at the International Photography Awards 2013, and runner up in The Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize 2012.

ALPHA intends to start a dialogue about mental health and the impact of the alpha male stereotype. Scarlet Page’s work features unseen portraits of men that have lived with depression or difficult life events, including musicians Gary Numan, Frank Turner and Professor Green. Helena Berg’s faces appear almost trapped or frozen underwater, including a striking portrait of Brian Molko, referencing the inability to be in action. Jennifer Pattison’s images of her fathers artwork made during his re-habilitation reflect her personal connection to these objects. Will Morgan’s series shot at dawn are a play on ‘the darkness before the dawn’ and the realisation that things will get better. Peter Guenzel’s sombre landscapes highlight the passing of time and the ever-present light.

With suicide being the biggest killer of men aged 20-45 in the UK, CALM aims to keep men alive by talking. ALPHA is the next stage of this potentially life-saving conversation.

ALPHA launched on Friday 20th November 2015 at theprintspace Gallery (74 Kingsland Road, E2 8DL).

She always puts the artist at ease and remains calm whatever challenges might arise. Bands *love* her and that’s probably why she gets so much great material from her sessions - they know they can trust her to deliver the goods and there’s never any stress.
