‘I Met Him On The Street In Camden Town…’
by Eugene Little
Eugene Little is a member of Portugal Prints – a creative arts project for people living with mental health difficulties based at Arlington House in Camden. He has spent many hours drawing homeless people. “I met him on the street in Camden Town,” he says of his anonymous subject.
“He had a nasty eye. He’d been asleep in his sleeping bag when someone kicked him in the head. A day or two later the police asked him about it. He described the man who attacked him. They knew him and he was arrested.”
