Make Life Worth Living by Nick Hedges coming soon

Make Life Worth Living by Nick Hedges is opening soon at the Science Museum. Once again, it’s free!

From 2/10/2014 To 18/01/2015 – 2nd Floor

Visit the Science Museum website for more information on how to get here, museum’s accessibility and school programmes.

Make Life Worth Living presents a collection of powerful and moving works by documentary photographer Nick Hedges, commissioned in 1968 by the housing and homelessness charity Shelter.

These hard-hitting photographs, exposing the poor housing conditions and abject poverty being endured by people across Britain, form one of the most important documentary photography projects of the 20th century.

Exhibited for the first time, following a 40 year restriction to protect the anonymity of the subjects, one hundred black and white photographs will be displayed alongside edited texts from Hedges’ detailed written notes of his travels and encounters.

Discover this compelling collection in the Virgin Media Studio at Media Space. These images have been selected from the extensive Hedges archive, held in the National Photography Collection at the National Media Museum in Bradford.
