COVER 2019 MyLondon calendar Summer Style, TOWER BRIDGE
This dog was photographed by Goska Calik on Tower Bridge. Can you see the reflection of Tower Bridge in the sunglasses? Goska says the dog was with a Roma woman who was busking, playing music on an accordion.
Arriving in London eight years ago, Goska found herself homeless when she lost her job due to illness. After sofa-surfing for several months she was finally directed to Crisis where she was helped to find a place to live. Originally from Poland, she has been involved with the MyLondon Photo project since 2015.
Goska is now working as a support worker with people with mental health problems. She goes to Cardboard Citizens, a homelessness support organisation where she participated in photography and a dance workshop. She is a member of the Café Art RPS photography mentoring project and in early October 2018 had a photograph exhibited with Café Art’s exhibition in Geneva at the United Nations. [154 words]
