‘A Life Worth Living’ Nick Hedges’ photographs for Shelter 1969-72 at Street Level Photoworks

An exhibition currently running at Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow:

In 1968, Shelter employed Nick Hedges to document the oppressive and abject living conditions being experienced in poor quality housing in the UK.  The whole project included images taken in Newcastle, London, Belfast, Manchester, Birmingham, Burnley, Sheffield, and Glamorgan. Shelter commissioned the work in an effort to raise consciousness about the extent of unfit living conditions and to illustrate, in human terms, what the real cost of bad housing was.
