English photographer Ben Roberts headed to the makeshift home base of Occupy London protesters, St. Paul’s Cathedral, at the end of October on a mission to discredit the media’s claim that only 10 percent of the 250 tents that lined St. Paul’s Square were inhabited. Roberts succeeded, photographing a variety of spaces — all of which seem believably lived-in, complete with crumpled bed sheets, endless cans of food, creepy hanging masks, and other personal accoutrements — and documented his findings in an eye-opening photo series titled Occupied Spaces. Have a peek inside the communal tents and private living quarters Occupy London protesters have called home after the jump.
