At the weekend I had a photographic job to shoot the pictures at a charity event run by ‘WSO – Liverpool & Merseyside’. This charity is set up to help the homeless in Liverpool and surrounding areas. It was well attended and there was a good response from the general public in giving to this worthy cause. I was commissioned to take the photographs for the bands who were playing. As I walked home after the event through the crowds of revellers in the street, I was stunned by the numbers of rough sleepers lining the pavements – a real epidemic! The bands were, Dan Wilson & the Counterfactuals, Interrobang, Museum of Backward Hats, and Mono LP’s. All proceeds from the night were donated to The Liverpool Homeless street Team.
