Earlier this year, we were proud to be part of a new exhibition – Beyond the Invisible – to shine a light on 15 people’s experiences with endometriosis.

The unique, interactive exhibition was presented by Standard Life, featuring photographs from internationally renowned photographer Rankin. The series of videos and photographs featured intimate portraits of fifteen women and men who have a relationship with this invisible illness in the hope of making it ‘visible’ to the public.
