Details

An Outsider's View: Canterbury through the lenses of Porchlight people.

Photographs using disposable cameras which paint a picture of people full of creativity and tenderness challenging pre-conceived sterotypes of what it is to be ‘homeless’. Porchlight helps vulnerable and isolated young people and adults access support for mental health, housing, education and employment, and equips them to live independently and play an active role in their community.
