40 Faces of St Gemma’s Hospice

Go behind the scenes of St Gemma’s Hospice through these portraits of 40 people, photographed by Olivia Hemingway. Patients, families, volunteers and staff all share their stories in this moving and uplifting exhibition.

This is a chance to discover the often surprising reality of hospice care, with stories that share feelings of hope, love, happiness, humour and bravery.

The series was created during our 40th Anniversary year and the exhibition was on display at Leeds City Museum over summer 2018, alongside various pop-up exhibitions across Leeds and surrounding areas.
