Best of British. I’ve decided to start photographing homeless people. I’ve previously avoided this because it felt quite exploitative. However, there are now so many people living on the streets of London that not photographing them feels like I’m ignoring them. Homelessness has recently become a huge part of London life. I’ve always lived in London and I know from personal experience that it most certainly wasn’t like this just 10 years ago - something has really changed for the worse in British society. . . . . . #bcncollective Bnw_demand. #CaptureStreets #challengerstreets #curiouscameraclub #endausterity #london #austerity #FriendsInPerson #FriendsinStreets #FromStreetsWithLove #endhomelessness #shelter #lensculturediscovery #Life_Is_Scene #streetfinder #charity #myfeatureshoot #brokenbritain #ASPfeatures #theguardian #Streets_Storytelling #sweet_street_beat #Streetlife_Award #homelessshelter #crisis #spicollective #TheStreetPhotographyHub #Timeless_Streets #toprepostme

It is becoming more and more common for cities around the world to put spikes down so the homeless can not sleep there.
This is a picture from the UK but it has become very common in the USA as well. Spikes are now deployed in San Francisco Los Angeles and other areas around the country.
