COMMUNICATIONS NEWS: The homeless perspective

"To begin with I was more interested in the technical side of photography, but now I'm starting to look at myself more." This is how Tom, a homeless person who took part in a new photography project, has captioned one of his photographs. The shot is one of an exhibition of photographs taken by homeless people sleeping rough in London organised by PhotoVoice, an international organisation that provides photographic training to marginalised groups across the world. The organisation gave participants a camera and some basic training and asked them to produce photo stories documenting their lives around the theme of transition. John Bird, founder of the Big Issue magazine and trustee of PhotoVoice, will open the exhibition on 11 December at the Concrete Basement gallery in London's Waterloo.
