Tabish KhanThese London Bedrooms Tell Heartbreaking Stories
Photographer Katie Wilson has been visiting and capturing the places where some of London's most disadvantaged children sleep. Each photograph tells a story that had remained unseen until now. Seeing bedding squeezed under the stairs next to a washing machine and hearing how difficult life is for mothers who are former sex slaves is heartbreaking.
The full set of photographs is on display at The Foundling Museum. This is just a small selection of those in the show. The images without a human presence are almost ghostly, much like how these children must feel with most Londoners not knowing how they live.
The exhibition is accompanied by a report by The Childhood Trust on how London's housing crisis is affecting some of the most vulnerable Londoners.
