Baker was from a middle class background, without any experience of working class life.
Yet her work is not patronising and doesn’t romantacise its subjects.
Baker saw the slum clearances as the destruction of those communities.
Many of the photographs focus on children and their resilience. They’re shown turning the rubble into a makeshift playground.
Baker explained that she “Wanted to do something. But what could I do? I decided I would go out on the streets capturing this upheaval, photographing people I came across”.
