PROBLEMS OF PERCEPTIONS : THE INVISIBLE PEOPLE OF LONDON
It seems to me that there is a large group of people living here that nobody sees. Living in a world within our world, hidden in plain sight - the invisible people of London. They all have something in common - they have been labeled, left alone, ignored and forgotten by society.
Homeless people are the living testimony of the broken system and our failure to make it work. I believe they are also reflection of our ‘collective’ soul, somehow lost spirit of humanity and society as a whole.
All photographs in this project were taken in London, U.K. between 2016-present and are part of an ongoing project: a collaboration of the street artists and homeless people themselves aiming to raise the awareness of this issue as well as to explore possible ways of the sustainable solution to help solving this problem, the problem of perceptions.
I am very honoured that my photographs were displayed as the part of “Homeless - An Exhibition for Change” in Elms Lesters Painting Rooms in London. This exhibition was about changing the way we perceive and treat some of the most vulnerable people in the world, and understanding why and how extreme poverty still exists in the developed world.
