Hull tent city eviction

Back in November I shot a story for the big Issue in Hull. The story was focussed on the eviction of the Tent City that had sprung up in the city's Queens Gardens. 

The tent city movement is a form of protest highlighting the the issue of homelessness and there have been a few around the country. It involves the putting up of tents that can then be used as shelter. The council had issued an eviction notice and the protest had until 4pm on the 15th November to vacate the area. Journalist, Ryan fletcher, and myself had been commissioned by the  Big Issue North to cover the eviction and to find out a bit more about the protest. 

Things took a strange turn in the afternoon around 2:30pm when Jeremy Kyle turned up and it all became a bit of a circus. The police never turned up to evict either, probably because of the tv crews. 

All the images are shot on the Fuji XT1 and XE2 with the 18-55mm, 35mm f2 and 55-200mm lenses. 

And this is how the feature looked in the magazine itself.

Thanks for reading.
