  Moyra Peralta Monday 10 December 2001  
Moyra Peralta is a photographer whose book, Nearly Invisible, containing 30 years worth of pictures of homeless people was published in November.

Her engagement with the documentation of 'street homelessness' is deeply personal and has been ongoing for many years.
As a student in the early 70s, a chance to join one of the London soup runs subsequently led to a 25 year involvement with documenting homelessness.
One of her recent projects involved asking people to empty their pockets and recording the contents through photographs. The result was snapshots of people's lives.
She joins Jenni in the studio.
Nearly Invisible (ISBN: 0-9531541-1-4)
