“The lapwing had taken all his words, leaving him no voice for his own story…”
A collection of work created through the Harrogate Haunt project was published in a pocket-sized book that brings together poems and stories by people who have experienced homelessness in Harrogate, with moving portraits and landscapes by award winning photographer Paul Floyd Blake.
“and where were you when the fire burned down my soul?”
The anthology was launched in 2015 at the Royal Pump Rooms Museum. Copies of the anthology can be bought for £5.00 + P&P, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Proceeds will go towards future Haunt projects with people experiencing homelessness.
This film is ‘Homelessness and Bedsitterland in Harrogate’ by Haunt contributor Richard Harries who’s written about his experiences of homelessness in 60s Harrogate.
