Manchester one love

June 15, 2017

When a major disaster like the Manchester attacks happen, freelance journalists get phone calls from people they have never worked for before.

I got one from cosmopolitan.com.

They wanted a piece detailing the experiences of young women caught up in the bombing.

You can read it here.

It was a humbling experience which gave me an insight into the trauma, and the courage needed to cope.

Also for Cosmo, I did a photo essay on the concertgoers who braved fears of another terror attack to attend Manchester’s One Love concert – held barely a fortnight later.

It was great to be there.
