Transitional (Final Selection)
Homelessness is a vast problem in the UK exacerbated by a growing poverty and shortage of housing. With nowhere to go, millions are forced to live in temporary accommodations and in overcrowded and inadequate conditions whilst on council housing waiting lists. The project Transitional captures these grim realities allowing the viewer into the lives of Britain's hidden homeless: people stuck in hostels, B&B and temporary flats. It represents a dramatic crisis because many are left in temporary, provisional situations for an unacceptable long time. Some had been in limbo for two years or more, and that has a lot of physical and psychological repercussions for them. The impact is great.
