Video: The Unofficial Countryside

The Unoffical Countryside - photography film by Streetwise Opera from Streetwise Opera on Vimeo.

Streetwise Opera provides creative opportunities for homeless and formerly homeless people. They recently took inspiration from The Unofficial Countryside by Richard Mabey, a book from the 1970s celebrating nature breaking through in unexpected places (read Iain Sinclair's reappraisal), gave workshop members cameras and told them to go out and capture overlooked spots of green. The result is this rather beautiful and delicate film documenting unloved parts of the city, made lovely.
