A new exhibition named ‘Hidden and Hunted’ which focuses on the impacts of homelessness on women is on display along Worthing seafront.
It features evocative images taken by six West Sussex women affected byhomelessness, as they offer a glimpse into what their lives are like, and how their experiences differ from those of homeless men.
The photographs can be found in the seafront shelter on the promenade, opposite West Buildings, which is owned by Worthing Borough Council.
They are the result of partnerships with local homelessness charity Turning Tides, Safe in Sussex and the Brighton Women’s Centre, where staff supported the women in working with local, professional photographer, Sam Pharoah.
Sam helped the women to to shape their thoughts and ideas and capture them using photography.
The project is part of the national Ending Women’s Homelessness campaign which has been running for the past year.
It was coordinated by the Ideas Alliance and was funded by Homeless Link as part of a wider initiative to raise the profile of the challenges faced by women experiencing homelessness.
