Tony Mallon, Quiet Room
For 10 years, photographic artist, Tony Mallon has lived & worked as an artist in residence in the Kensington New Deal for Communities (NDC) area of Liverpool. The NDC was the Government’s strategy to tackle deprivation in some of the poorest areas in the country. The main aim was reduce the gap, in terms of deprivation and inequality, between those areas and the rest of the country.
Since January 2012 he has been employed by Crisis Skylight Merseyside as a Photography Tutor, delivering weekly workshops at various homeless hostels in Merseyside.
Quiet Room is a collaboration between Tony Mallon (Digit in the Rib) & The Salvation Army International Heritage Centre. Mallon reflects the interaction between the Heritage Centre’s photographic archives & his project, Homeless, which moved beyond the human presence to explore & examine the spaces & experience of living in homeless hostels in Merseyide.
