Entry Description

Group cuddling in a squat called ‘Borough High Street‘ in London, United Kingdom. This image belongs to the series 'A Place Called Home', exploring the concept of home within London's squatting scene. What might commonly be perceived as a shelter for the homeless or poor is often a conscious choice - an alternative and communal way of living. The communal squatting lifestyle often creates strong bonds between the residents, resulting in a family feeling, hence a sense of home within a life in constant transition.
