Doorway, Berkley Crescent, Gravesend

This post has a personal resonance for me. I’m currently working on a documentary project at the Sanctuary, a winter night shelter in Gravesend. The shelter only has the resources to open three nights a week. When it’s not open one of the guests sleeps in this doorway. 

There is a fundamental difference between knowing that people sleep rough and knowing people who sleep rough. For one of those people this is home. More of that project to come.

Go back to 1/365 for the explanation of the chunky grain.
