The institutional abuse and neglect of children unlucky enough to enter the UK care system has been recently been described as a "national disgrace" by a UK Government report.
The statistics on their own make heart-breaking reading, yet behind every one of them there is an individual tale of abandonment, pain, horror, despair and exploitation which almost always goes unheard.
Keith Lawton's life story has been just one of these sad tales. His account of his time in care is harrowing, yet it is alive with hope, survival and triumph in the face of traumatic adversity. Recently described as "disturbing", "lucid" and a "must read" by a Member of the Royal Historical Society, 'No Photographs' is the story of how circumstances beyond his control plunged a young boy into a nightmare - and how the man emerged triumphant.
