Homelessness Feature for Buzzfeed UK – 220,000 Views in the First Weekend

Homeless Londoners Buzzfeed UK Feature

My first commissioned piece for Buzzfeed UK – Homeless Londoners Explain Why They’re Living On The Streets – involved travelling across London with Matthew Tucker (Buzzfeed UK’s Picture Editor) and speaking to rough sleepers.

We spoke to 11 people in the end, and told their stories through a combination of images, quotes, and embedded audio files.

The article was used twice as the splash on Buzzfeed UK’s homepage and was widely shared on Facebook and Twitter. It received over 220,000 hits in its first weekend.
