This pretty edition of summer 2022 Hopezine has been brought to you by students studying A-level photography at Stafford College. Its’ been inspired by Project Soothe, a citizen science project that urges participants to photograph what soothes them and to share this with others. Leah Greenaway-Lewis has been guest editor of this issue and shared her bright lilac flower for the cover. Georgina Parry shares her favourite place to sit and relax at Cannock Chase. Molly Taylor loves the winter so has shared a photo of lambs in the snow. For a moment of mindfulness look to Olivia Walters’ photo of bicycles on the street and fellow student Stanley Clare concludes this edition of Hopezine with a sunset. You can find out more about Project Soothe or get involved by visiting www.projectsoothe.com. The online gallery is open for viewing 24/7 and they still accept submissions.
