20 June – 22 July 2018
On display at the Workhouse Museum
Homeless Not Faceless explored the causes of homelessness for people in North Yorkshire through photographs, interviews and objects.
The exhibition featured the stories and photographs of 12 people, who gave their own accounts of being homeless and was created in partnership with the Harrogate Homeless Project and Ripon YMCA, who gave their support to the clients featured in the exhibition.
Museum staff interviewed the clients to get their stories of homelessness in their own words, whilst photographer Tim Smith took portrait images of the clients, or at their request, their shoes or hands. These images and stories were displayed alongside an object, chosen by the client, to represent one of the reasons for their homelessness.
