What’s important is who tells the stories. And I think there are many programs that … do too much speaking for people from working-class backgrounds, people from minority groups.

I think we can all tell our own stories. One of the things I’m trying to do is work with people and help them realise their own stories.

invisible britain: portraits of hope and resilience

Invisible Britain: Portraits of Hope and Resilience reveals untold stories from people who have been left out of the media narrative and left behind by government policy. Featuring new work from award-winning and accomplished documentary photographers (including Andrew Jackson, Jenny Lewis, Jo Metson Scott, Laura Pannack, John Spinks and Jon Tonks), the book presents people speaking in their own words to create a narrative that illustrates how an unprecedented world of austerity, deindustrialisation and social upheaval is affecting us all.
