In connection with the recent “Home Time – Photography Finding A Home” exhibition at the Getty Images Gallery in London, “Marie Claire” runs an article in its June issue about both the exhibition and “Barnardo’s”, the charity promoting adoption in the UK.
It kind of baffles me that one even has to promote adoption. If you needn’t to be married for five years, “unwillingly childless” and have the income of a bank director where I live, I’d done it long ago. Anyway, initiator of this event was/is photographer Cambridge Jones, and many celebrities participated in this exhibition, among them Jack Davenport and Andrew Lincoln.
If you’re interested in adoption, please check out Barnardo’s. It’s a good thing, folks.
“(…) It’s vital that people are reminded about adoption – there are so many children in the UK in need of a loving family. It can change lives in the profoundest way imaginable. – Jack Davenport (…)”
