• #ItCouldBeMe
    A Portrait of our Community

    I was Photographer in Residence at SHOC - Slough Homeless Our Concern between December 2015 and September 2016. I spent time with staff, volunteers and clients listening to them and their stories. I wanted to counter the usual representation of homeless by the media who, all too often, adopt a patronising, superficial and superior gaze.

    Influenced by Richard Alvedon's "In the American West" and Anthony Luvera's assisted self portraits I worked with the SHOC community using either a popup studio or a significant location.

    I wanted to draw out the individuality of each person and show they, like everyone else, have hopes and dreams, loves and hates, strengths and weaknesses.

    The residency and body of work documents the compelling and chaotic narrative of Serena Hall’s daily life, the people living and working there, the often unseen spaces associated with homelessness and the
    support people provide.
