Photographer Mike Heffernan is unveiling Streets, a load of drop-dead fantastic portrait photos of homeless people. The entire 20 book cost is going to charity Shelter and the project is sponsored by Sir Terence Conran and the Richard Rogers Partnership, among others. Heffernan says he ‘wanted to photograph the homeless as I would like to be photographed, not as statistics sleeping in doorways. Most are on the streets because they have been abused or institutionalised at an early age’. If you’ve got any spare change, these photos beg to be viewed. Catch the exhibition at London’s Coningsby Gallery until 25 October and the book at Waterstones, Dillons, Zwemmers or by direct order on 01621 819596.
