What does a vegan look like?

Photographer Jordan Hall meets her local community

Jordan Hall is a photographer from Birmingham, who spent some time getting to know vegans from her local area. “I like to talk about topics within my work that are important to me, for example past projects have included things concerning sexual assault awareness and climate change. I was really inspired to use my work to discuss the question, ‘What do vegans look like?’ There’s such a strong and prevalent stereotype of vegans, and I wanted to highlight the diversity and individuality within our community; there is no such thing as ‘one type of vegan’. My aim was to create a space for people in my local community to share their stories and who they are as people. Anyone can be vegan — there is no checklist of characteristics or personality traits you have to follow, nothing you need to do or need to be in order to follow this lifestyle, just the desire to make a change.

About Vegan Life

I count my lucky stars every day to do a job that I love. But, the best part of it- is being surrounded by likeminded people. Working at a vegan-run company, alongside passionate staff who care about animals and the environment, not only means I am constantly inspired, but also supported in my own ethics and principles. Sadly, for so many people, this isn’t the case. Many companies struggle to support, from not providing plant-based milk alternatives in an office or forcing vegan staff to wear animal products as part of their uniform. Fat Gay Vegan gives some great advice on negotiating being a vegan in a non-vegan workplace on p32 and we’ve rounded up some great vegan-friendly career ideas on p106. We also spoke to two entrepreneurs who have bit the bullet and set up their own vegan businesses — they give us their tips on p112. I was contacted a little while ago by the talented vegan photographer Jordan Hall, who was working on a project called What does it look like to be vegan? Jordan’s goal was to highlight the diversity and individuality within our community and hear some of the stories of fellow passionate vegans. We’re delighted to showcase her work on p34. Also, we have a brilliant interview with the inspiring Joey Carbstrong on p18, we chat to campaigner Nina Jackel, the powerhouse behind Lady Freethinker, on p28, and Maria Slough meets artist and ethical influencer Emily Lamb on p96.
