This photograph of 18-year-old orphan Nabil Ahmed, who was left to care for his two disabled brothers, forms part of a new exhibition organised by the London Evening Standard and the Museum of London.

The show is being mounted to highlight poverty in London and forms part of the newspaper’s Dispossessed campaign.

The exhibition tells the stories of ordinary Londoners breaking free from the bonds of poverty – Londoners such as Ahmed, who is doing an apprenticeship scheme run by a local Tower Hamlets charity, City Gateway.

The exhibition runs from 23 August to 20 November at the Museum of London.

See our gallery for other photographs from the exhibition.
