ABOUT THE BOOK

Enter the private world of a group of Travellers living beneath the Westway, London’s vast elevated highway connecting suburbia to the city. Part of a unique culture so often stigmatised in the media, this close-knit community is under increasing pressure to move on and risk losing their identity for good. Here is their story.

Paul's documentary photographs are accompanied by text detailing his experience including how he gained access to this otherwise closed group

Paul Wenham-Clarke is an Association of Photographers Gold Award winner and a Professor of Photography at Arts University Bournemouth where he is the MA Photography course leader. His work is the result of a desire to communicate social and environmental issues that he feels passionately about, whether it is the loss of human and animal life on our roads, the plight of our homeless, or, as in this book, a community fighting to protect its cultural identity.
