This Kind Of Poverty is London-based photographer Spencer Murphy‘s series commissioned by Save The Children as part of their UK child poverty campaign in collaboration with Labyrinth Photographic. Shot in 2012, Murphy worked with children over a period of two days in the Poplar Boys And Girls Youth Club in one of the most deprived areas in the UK, Tower Hamlets in east London. He asked them to write down their thoughts about poverty within the UK—’what is it, and how do you feel about it?’ The resulting series combines Murphy’s portraits with the telling words of the children.
