Cheer Up Luv is a photo and interview series, retelling women's accounts of street harassment. The project combines photography with journalism, activism and social media, and has gained interest from women all over the world. The women 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 and Tokyo, and has most recently partnered with the United Nations Population Fund, on an awareness campaign about sexual harassment on public transport in Sri Lanka.
The project aims to represent the women 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. It has also been exhibited in Sri Lanka, New York and and London.
