AN exhibition featuring the work of Archant Suffolk photographer Sarah Lucy Brown has raised nearly £3,000 to help homeless children.
The 10th annual 24Photography showcase is on at Berkeley Square, Mayfair, in London, until Friday, March 22.
This year’s exhibition features work in black and white and was curated by renowned Magnum photographer Peter Marlow.
An auction of selected prints raised an impressive £2,715 in aid of Hope and Homes for Children, an international charity working to ensure all children have the chance to grow up with a family.
Sarah is a founding member of 24Photography, which was set up by a group of students who were studying a postgraduate photography course at Central Saint Martin’s in London.
The idea is simple: 24 photographers, documenting the first 24 hours of every New Year for 24 years. Each individual is tasked with capturing a single moment within their allotted hour, creating a unique collection of images.
Sarah said: “After nine years of shooting through the night, this was my first chance to capture the dawn of a New Year.

“The walker in this photo was a complete surprise but I knew instantly that the shot was ‘the one’.
“The photograph encapsulates everything I love about photography and 24 – the adrenalin rush of not quite knowing what you will find and where you will find it.”
The exhibition is open daily from 9am-5pm and admission is free.
