Make Life Worth Living presents a collection of powerful and moving works by documentary photographer Nick Hedges, commissioned in 1968 by the housing and homelessness charity Shelter.
These hard-hitting photographs, exposing the poor housing conditions and abject poverty being endured by people across Britain. The collection forms one of the most important documentary photography projects of the 20th century.
One hundred black and white photographs are on display for the first time, following a 40 year restriction to protect the anonymity of the subjects. Edited texts from Hedges’ detailed notes accompany the photographs.
Discover our compelling selection from the extensive Hedges archive in the Virgin Media Studio at Media Space.
The Hedges archive is part of the National Photography Collection at the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford.
