Faces in Focus are a growing network of photographers, telling the stories that matter to the people who care. Each week they feature the lives of people connected to charities and organisations around the world. From Syria to Sri Lanka, Colombia to Calais, their work spans an eclectic mix of people and cultures.

Through selling prints, direct donations, or signing up to volunteer, they provide a conduit to invest in the futures of those on both sides of the lens.
