The scourge of homelessness has been highlighted in a new photographic exhibition.

Members of the Westcourt Camera Club in Belfast worked alongside residents in supported accommodation in Rosemount House to produce a series of photographs which aim to increase awareness of and prompt discussion around the grim reality of homelessness in our city.

In December there were almost 44,500 on the social housing waiting list, many of whom are classed as in acute housing need.

The Still Somebody – Voices For Change exhibition is part of this year's Four Corners Festival.

It runs to February 5 at Artcetera Studio, 43B Rosemary Street, Belfast BT1 1QB.
