About this event

Watermans delivers a year-round programme for children and young people with disabilities and their families in Hounslow, supported by Hounslow Council’s Short Breaks programme.

This summer, local photographer Simon Tang visited Short Breaks families in Hounslow. The project aimed to explore, document and celebrate the resilience of families with a disabled child, who have been even more challenged than most during the pandemic.

As well as the hero shots of each family, there are images that are shot more loosely and quickly, enabling Simon to capture something less staged and perhaps more relaxed and intimate that shows the daily joy, strength and love that is the glue of a family with a disabled child.


Photographs: Simon Tang

Words: Tamara Stoll

This project was funded by London Borough of Hounslow and developed in partnership with Short Breaks and Watermans.

With huge thanks to all families involved.
