Come with photographer Si Barber as he captures the mood of a desperate and angry nation as it bears the full force of the credit crunch and the fall out from the collapse of the neo- liberal dream.
A disturbing road trip along the hidden lanes and narrows of the UK, The Big Society examines Britain from the perspective of people trying to negotiate their way through the chaos brought about by a nationís leaders unshaking belief in the Voodoo economics which took it to the brink of bankruptcy in 2007.
By turns tragic, sinister, banal and just plain daft the photographer travelled 12000 miles around the UK in over three years. The Big Society features not the movers or the shakers, but those surviving the will of the powerful. The shop workers made to dance for their employers each morning. The sex workers stumbling around the darkened streets of Bradford looking for punters. The skivers and the squaddies, the lucky and the losers.
