About the event

Daniel Regan is a photographer whose work focuses on themes of wellbeing and the processing of life’s experiences. I Want to Live is his collaboration with suicide respite centre Maytree. The exhibition comprises a number of interviews and photographic portraits of Maytree’s volunteer workforce, investigating what brings people to volunteer with those in suicidal crisis, volunteers’ own mental health experiences and the impact of suicide. Alongside these images are a series of photographs taken at the house, highlighting the liminal space where significant change often takes place and the traces that Maytree’s many guests have left behind.

The photographs and interviews initially formed part of a 4 month exhibition at the Free Space Project (London) and a series of arts workshops focusing on suicide and bereavement.
A book is available of the full I Want to Live project which includes more interviews, images and an introduction by Anna McNay.
