I AM: Residents encouraged to write statement for global project

 Published on: 13th January 2023   |   By: Darius Morgan   |   Category: Uncategorized

A former Berkhamsted resident and retired documentary photographer is encouraging introspection as part of a global project.

David Richardson has been a volunteer for Crisis homeless charity for many decades. More than 15 years ago, David asked homeless people to write a statement about themselves.

Now living in Nepal, David has continued his self-awareness project.

David said: “I motivate any literate individual to write a statement starting with the two words ‘I am’.

“They are given no encouragement; all they have to do is think about who they are.”

Over the years, David has collated more than 900 statements from participants aged seven to 70. He hopes to one day exhibit the “organic resource” globally.

He said: “Many Nepalese locals have submitted with only a degree of English as a second language. I never edit or get any to rewrite.”
