Aims to Honour and Put a face to the efforts of our Portsmouth based brave keyworkers through photography which would be exhibited publicly

by Olufemi David Olaiya in Portsmouth, England, United Kingdom


The Pompey Heroes Project is a photography series centred on Honouring keyworkers who volunteered, and worked tirelessly, at the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic to improve the lives of the people of Portsmouth.

These pictures put a face to the efforts of those heroes and shows the ethnic, cultural and religious diversity of our city. 

Life as we know it will be different from this point onwards and there is no better way to decorate our public spaces than seeing the faces of our brave keyworkers lighting up our public space and radiating with the belief that together we can create a better future for humanity.

I am collaborating with Shaping Portsmouth on this project;  Utilising their infrastructure to ensure that the project is successful. 

With a financial backing of £2500, we can brighten up our public spaces with the faces of our Keyworkers.
