This new photographic exhibition documents the living conditions of London’s most disadvantaged children

The damaging consequences for children arising from the shortage of social housing in London are laid bare in Bedrooms of London, a new photo-documentary exhibition at London’s Foundling Museum, created in partnership with London’s child poverty charity, The Childhood Trust.

The exhibition presents a new body of work by photographer Katie Wilson. Focusing on the spaces in which children are sleeping, the photographs are shown alongside first-hand narratives from families, and offer a poignant insight into the lives and experiences of children living in poverty across London.

In a city where extreme poverty and wealth exist side-by-side, Bedrooms of London makes visible the often shocking and unseen reality of home life for the 700,000 children currently living below the poverty line in our capital, and challenges the prejudices and stereotypes associated with child poverty.
