William And Kate Spotlight Young People For World Photography Day
To mark World Photography Day on Thursday, Prince William and Duchess Kate shared photos taken by youth! The images were selected as part of Kate's pandemic-inspired photo project, Hold Still. See what the couple said about these special pictures!
Prince William and Duchess Kate are honouring some of Britain's youth! On Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took to social media to make a special post for World Photography Day that showcases young people's submissions for the Hold Still project.
William and Kate recognize "talent, creativity, and curiosity" of youth
William and Kate explained why they chose to share these images specifically. "Photography has an amazing ability to create a lasting record of what we have all experienced & are experiencing," they said, mentioning that the images come from the "youngest finalists" for Hold Still.
The couple went on to commend the youth whose photos they shared for their "talent, creativity, and curiosity." They also acknowledged the fact that the National Portrait Gallery currently hosts the Hold Still exhibition, giving them a special thank you.
Last year, Kate created the Hold Still photo project, which encouraged people from across the UK to take a snapshot of life during lockdown. On top of being displayed in one of London's most prestigious art galleries, the images the royal selected have since been turned into a photobook. Back in May, Kate even hid copies of the book around London after its debut!
