TIM WAINWRIGHT

Tim Wainwright's residency at Harefield Hospital - Transplant (2006 - 2009) with John Wynne continued his 15-year exploration of the four essential elements of being human - the mind, body, heart and soul.

In Allowed to Speak (1994 -1997), he documented the lives of people living with mental illness in London. His focus moved from mind to body during a residency with cancer patients, where he produced We Are All The Same (2002 - 2005). Both works reflect the moral and intellectual questions relating to the representation of being human. "As with Arbus, there is no sense of hierarchy in these portraits ... on some level they are all self-portraits." (Charles Darwent)

With exhibitions on both sides of the Atlantic, he has also shown more abstract collections. In a review of Atlantic Revisited (2006) - a series of images taken in Europe and America - Dr Eric Bookhardt concludes: "Photography is the most democratic of all art forms because of its uniquely direct relationship with the world around us. In this work, Wainwright reveals that art is where you find it."

THE PROSTATE CANCER CHARITY

The Prostate Cancer Charity was set up in 1996. In its relatively short life, the Charity has played a key role in raising both public awareness of the disease and political debate about services and support. The charity is the largest and most comprehensive of the charities focused specifically on prostate cancer. Over recent years it has invested nearly £5 million in vital medical research and supported thousands of men and their families.
