Jim Mortram’s Small Town Inertia is a must see…and the set below is the strongest I’ve seen so far..click full screen. To understand the stories and the people behind the images make sure you click here, and here. Please help Jim out if you can.
“These images depict the full stop of the Welfare State cuts, Housing Benefit cuts, Health cuts, loopholes and failures of systems and what happens when the heart of a community is slowly eroded. These images also depict the lives of those hanging on, bowed yet not broken, of lives where a fight to survive is very real. Fighting apathy, addiction, fighting loneliness, illness all the while clinging to self respect, adrift in the community, in life, but not yet lost.”
