Daysleeper (How Business Works), Brighton 2017
I’ve lived in Brighton for most of my life and have become increasingly aware of the rising numbers of homeless, sleeping on the street, in Brighton in recent years.
An affluent city, Brighton has one of the highest numbers of rough sleepers outside of London.
I decided to photograph people as they are actually sleeping on the streets, as this must prove that these people are genuinely going through an extremely hard time.
84 percent of homeless people in Brighton and Hove reported at least one physical health issue. 85 percent reported at least one mental health issue. 73 percent reported this mental health issue had been on going for 12 months or more.
Then I photographed Casey (not pictured here). Often seen around town wearing his bright blue onesy. He had cuts over his face. Rough sleepers are 13 times more likely to experience crime than the general public.
I heard some months later that he died on the street aged around his late 40’s. The average life expectancy of a man living on the streets is just 47, for a woman just 43.
Since 2010 homelessness in England has risen 33 percent.
No more deaths on our streets.
This tasty new little number is coming to The Rev next week and available all day every day! Our Bourbon Berry Tart Martini is packed with flavours of fresh raspberry, white chocolate, hazelnut and Blantons Single Barrel Reserve Bourbon. Truly exquisite 🍰🍸
So the heatwave ended rather abruptly... And it's ten degrees cooler than it was a couple of days ago, Whoop! If that's *too* cool for your small person, our lightweight hoodies are a perfect extra layer!
Lina has made this awesome dress using an original vintage pattern from the sixties. Lina has made it her own by adding red piping to the pockets and collar. Fantastic sewing Lina 👏#sewingclass#brightonandhove#beginners
