Residents or "companions" of  Emmaus, a charity that gives homeless people a place to live and work, have set up a photographic exhibition at The Central art Gallery in Ashton.

The Exhibition is called "The negatives" and aims to challenge peopl's attitudes toward homeless people. It gives a snapshot of the daily lives of the residents of Emmaus and their work at the Emmaus shop in Mossley aswell as their aspirations for the future.

Victoria Lowe of the contact theatre in Manchester taught the "companions" the basics of how to take a photograph. She said " they did everything from the ideas to taking the pictures and chose the photographs they wanted for the exhibition".

" The Negatives" exhibition is on at The Central Art Gallery in Ashton-under-Lyne until September 21st.
