“Please Mind the Flash” is an exhibition showcasing photographic work by 24 young Londoners produced as part of the Creativity Works: Visual Storytelling programme, a collaboration between Magnum Photos and Create Jobs.

During this free, seven-week course, these young creatives worked under the mentorship of Magnum Photos associate Sohrab Hura and in close collaboration with the exhibition co-curators Emma Bowkett (Director of Photography, Financial Times Weekend Magazine) and Max Ferguson (Founding Editor of Splash & Grab Magazine, the Director of Photography of Port Magazine) as well as the creative team at HudsonBec Group, to create a body of work that explores or represents their London.
