Greetings card 130 mm x 180 mm, folded. No message. Includes envelope.


Caption on the back reads:


"I liked the way the sculpture framed the bus,” says Alana Del Valle. “The artist who created it reminds us that metal is at times liquid or as soft as butter." Alana has been homeless off and on all her life, but is currently renting privately in what she describes as “run-down housing” and suffers from depression as a result. “This competition is invaluable in raising issues of homelessness and 'hidden' homelessness, it’s one of the crises our city is currently facing, with little or no governmental solutions.” A client at the Haringey Recovery Service run by St Mungo’s, she says she is “in the very early stages of recovery”. She finds art helps as a way of expressing emotion. “It’s a useful tool for recovery. It can be quite therapeutic. We can use the camera to show our point of view, or homeless people’s points of view of London or how they see the world, the negative or the beauty.” June in 2017 MYLONDON calendar
