About the project

This project shines a light on the varied lives of first responders across the world, showing what their working and personal lives are really like, from the day-to-day to the unimaginable, and everything in between. Collected over the past year, this emotive exhibition of interviews and photography explores the challenges, emotions and complexities of serving modern society. Bringing together a wide variety of portraits from first responders, it serves to highlight the many positives, negatives, the limitations and the rewards they experience. Please enjoy meeting, reading and engaging with the vibrant community of stories. Then join the conversation at #BehindtheUniform, follow @behind_theuniform, or share your story with us.
