Loneliness, seven homeless lives / Júlia Reina

Júlia Reina / ESDAP Catalunya / Campus Llotja

This project is intended to raise awareness of a group of people with a real presence who are often highly marginalized in our society: the homeless. How often do we come across homeless people in our everyday lives? And when we do, how often do we just carry on along our way and act as if they did not exist?

We have created a book –which will also come with a series of postcards inviting readers to take an active part– to raise awareness of these people and to make the population at large understand the situation of extreme poverty in which so many people find themselves. The product comprises photographs, illustrations, and texts by the author –with real statements from testimonies who have lived or who still live rough– to show how harsh this lifestyle is and the hardship of loneliness when surrounded by so many people.

The goal of the project Solitud, set vides sense llar (Loneliness, seven homeless lives) is to raise readers’ awareness and empathy towards the people affected and to encourage action that helps to solve the problem.
