Cheer Up Luv is an internationally recognised photo and interview series, retelling accounts of street harassment. The project combines photography with journalism, activism and social media, and has gained interest from all over the world. Subjects are photographed in public places related to their experience of harassment, then the stories are featured on @cheerupluv and cheerupluv.com.
The project has traveled from London, to New York, Mexico, Tokyo, and has partnered with the United Nations Population Fund, on an awareness campaign about sexual harassment on public transport in Sri Lanka.
The campaign aims to represent those who don't have a public voice, and to create a community of shared experiences whilst raising awareness about everyday harassment. It has gained coverage from i-D, Dazed, Wallpaper, BBC, and Refinery29 to name a few, and has been exhibited in Colombo, Warsaw, New York, Berlin and London.
