How people have found hope in difficult times

This new book of photographs reveals untold stories from people who have found hope among the ruins and survived difficult experiences. The editor Paul Sng presents a short film and a Q&A session with special guests.

'The faces in these photographs look out at us on an equal footing. Asking to be seen and heard. Not as case studies or statistics. People. Lives being lived.' Michael Sheen, from his foreword.

Invisible Britain: Portraits of Hope and Resilience is a book of stories that are rarely heard. It’s a book about people who are often marginalised in the media, neglected by politicians, and ignored within society. It’s a book about identity, injustice and inequality, and the social issues that are affecting millions of people across the UK. Most importantly, it’s a book about how people have found hope among the ruins and survived through difficult times. Each story is told by the individual in their own voice; less ethnography and more direct testimony.

Featuring new work from award-winning and accomplished documentary photographers, the book presents people speaking in their own words to create a narrative that illustrates how an unprecedented world of austerity, deindustrialisation and social upheaval is affecting us all.
