"By using familiar faces looking damaged and destitute, I want to help break down stereotypes about those without homes ... So they are seen as people rather than simply part of the scenery of modern life, or pests to be ignored"
"They are people who have somehow fallen through the gaps and found themselves, often through unimaginable circumstances, on the cusp of existence. In another reality, this could easily be me or you."
'What Makes Us Care?' is exhibited underground in the basement of the church, giving it a rustic and warehouse-esque feel. The prints adorn the heavy, stone walls beneath gentle spotlights and the bubble of conversation. A summary of Kat's project is printed at the entrance, setting the tone for the rest of the prints. What really struck me was the excellent makeup, and the depiction of such well-known and somewhat 'glamourous' faces in such desperate and compromising situations. Well worth a look, plus you can announce to your grandchildren that you attended the first ever exhibition of Kat Prescott in the twenty-tens ... It'll sound cool, trust me.
The exhibition is showing for FREE at St Martin-In-The-Fields, Trafalgar Sq, until 16th October, 2013. All donations and proceeds from prints are going to Centrepoint and The Big Issue Foundation.
