Youth Hostel Portraits // / by sophie green

Here are some portraits of people I met in a youth hostel in Elephant & Castle. The boy below had run away from his quiet town in Australia to London; he was so young, starting a new life and sharing his new bedroom in the youth hostel with 20 other people. He said he kept his passport and money in his pillow so it wouldn't be stolen. The black and white photographs are of Christian, who was over in London from Barcelona to learn English.
