Dee Allison, who goes to the Passage Charity near Victoria Station, took this shot outside the V&A museum. “This man was making bubbles and amusing the children. I had to hide behind the building to get into the shade because I was taking it into direct sunlight. I like it. It’s just flowing.” Dee arrived in London in 2009 to work as a carer after her husband retired in Durban, South Africa, but they still needed income. She came over for six months a year, until tragedy struck and she became homeless. “Three years ago one of my clients was falling and broke my hand. I’m having two operations. I never had accommodation because I was a live-in carer.” Dee now rents privately in Raines Park. "I’m trying to get my husband over from South Africa. He’s 75. I’ve just applied for his passport and he should get it soon. We’ve been married 50 years.” First Place (People’s Choice) 2018, May in 2019 MyLondon calendar.
