Photo Gallery: Invisible Britain
Invisible Britain: Portraits is a forthcoming photography book edited by filmmaker Paul Sng and co-curated by Chloe Juno and Laura Dicken that will feature stories and portraits of individuals across the UK who have been impacted by austerity, de-industrialisation and cuts to public services.
From cities, towns and rural areas across Britain, 40 diverse stories of hope and hopelessness will be told from within a changing society in which many feel misrepresented in the media and out of sync with the government and politicians. The book will be published by Policy Press (a non-profit university press committed to influencing social change through international research and scholarship) and is supported by The Young Foundation, a charity that tackles major social challenges by working alongside communities, using the tools of research and social innovation.

"What worries me is protectionism within communities. We are narrowing ourselves to the world around us. We are hearing so much noise from national - & international - leaders. We've got to work hard at being connected." @Edna_Rob @nugehelen #EqualiTeas #RochdaleTownHall
