Moyra Peralta gets interviewed on the BBC
. Only five minutes speaking about the growing crisis. She sensibly disputes London politicos who minimize the seriousness of the problem.
Her book, Nearly Invisible, is a sensitive, even intimate, look a people who are homeless. The focus of the book is on what each man and woman carries with them all the time - essential components of what they need and how each person sees him or herself, in spite of being without domicile.
She is not a voyeur. The people who agreed to be photographed, and have their possessions etched into the reader's memory - are her friends.You can find her book on sale through Amazon.com
