What’s the project all about?

Behind the Scars simply captures a scar and its beauty in a photograph, and relates the story that lies behind it.

Does your project cover emotional scars as well as physical scars?

This particular project deals with physical scars. Lookout for future projects though.

Are you planning any exhibitions?

We have already been lucky enough to hold exhibitions in York and London, most recently at the V&A Museum. We are looking forward to holding many more in the future.

What are you plans for the future?

More stories, more images, more exhibitions, and creating a book! All in good time..

Can I submit my own photographs?

We don’t accept personal submissions. The project is photographed solely by Sophie Mayanne in her own unique style.

Do you have a media package?

We don’t have a media package available at this point in time. Any media enquiries should be directed to hello@behindsthescars.co.uk with ‘MEDIA’ in the subject line.

I am doing a university project, am I able to include your images?

Any use of imagery from the project must be agreed in writing to protect both the participants and the integrity of the project. Any requests should be directed to hello@behindthescars.co.uk

Where can I find you on Social Media?
