Personal stories from health care workers feature in a poignant new photography and audio installation by the Empathy Museum.

From Where I’m Standing tells diverse stories from people around the UK as a record of life during the pandemic. The collection is made up of 34 portraits, each accompanied by an audio story and a photograph of an object that reflects the time period for the individual.

We are delighted to have supported the production of the stories from across the country, including front line health, social care and public health workers. The project is also supported by NHS England and Improvement and Arts Council England.

Intended to create a museum archive of the period the project is a real-time recording of what will become a key historical period of the 21st century. Together, the stories look at what the pandemic teaches us about empathy as well as exploring resilience, wellbeing, interdependence and what sustains us during challenging times.

In a time of intense focus on health and care, empathy is a powerful force for good. These stories are moments in time that are as valuable now as they will be in future.

The outdoor exhibition is taking place in Dalberg Road, Brixton, between 10 Dec 2020–10 Jan 2021 and can be viewed online at empathymuseum.com.
