About the event

In partnership with The Childhood Trust, Bedrooms of London presents a new body of work by photographer Katie Wilson highlighting the damaging consequences for children arising from the shortage of social housing in London. Focusing on the spaces in which children are sleeping, the photographs are shown alongside first-hand narratives from families collected and written by Isabella Walker, 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. Shown in the context of the Foundling Museum, the exhibition builds on the story of the Foundling Hospital, highlighting the situation today for some of London’s most vulnerable children.

The Childhood Trust was supported in producing this project by award-winning social change communications firm GOOD Agency. The exhibition has been created in partnership with the Foundling Museum.
