Art Turning Left is a new exhibition at Tate Liverpool. It is an exploration of how left-wing politics have influenced artists and the work that they produce. A curator called me and said that a contributing artist was keen to have some contemporary and local housing issues covered. Martha Rosler from New York presents her project called If You Lived Here Still were she documents homelessness in New York City, in 1989 and asked to include words and photographs from a recent piece in Vice Magazine about anti-bedroom tax activisits in Liverpool.
Also my work featured alongside another piece by James Margeson in Almanac - a great printed publication by the people that bring you the excellent Seven Streets website. These are some housing images from my archive taken in south Liverpool.

"Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank-you so much for the brilliant job you did for us in Bootle barracks the other week – we hit the Echo and also the Plymouth Daily (where we have an interest in veterans services) so we were dead chuffed."
