The Menopause Photography Project

The Menopause Photography Project (MPP) is part of the burgeoning movement to increase awareness of and education about the menopause, empowering women to explore and embrace this part of our lives. Menopause can come as a bit of shock given it has barely been talked about in public until recently and there has been such a lack of education (both in general education and also in medical training for GPs), so bringing our lived experiences to the wider world is more urgent than ever.


The MPP will document women’s experiences of menopause through portrait photography and conversation. These photographs and experiences will be woven together in a final exhibition, raising awareness and sparking further exchange.


The MPP will bring together a wide range of women, including those whose voices are often marginalised. We will share and learn from a diverse range of experiences of menopause, provoke conversations about what menopause is and what it means - to those of us who experience it as well as in a broader cultural sense. The Project will highlight the issues we face, look at what is being done to improve menopause care and what the positives are as we live this stage of our lives (there are positives, despite how it may feel at times!).

All proceeds from the exhibition will go to the brilliant work done by The Menopause Charity.
