A 1 year photography residency commissioned by The Whitechapel Centre: Aigburth Drive Hostel.
The hostel accommodation is for single homeless men aged 40 and above and is a Harm Reduction Service for men who need support to manage their alcohol use. The service recognises that some people who use alcohol may not be ready to stop using and become abstinent. Their focus is on reducing the negative consequences of alcohol use rather than on eliminating (although abstinence may remain the ideal goal).
The residency involved weekly photography sessions with residents exploring Merseyside. For everyone who participated it was the first time they had used a digital camera.
