At a time when we are presented with one dominant narrative about refugees, this project tells another side of the story. Over four months, Nana worked alongside ten of our clients, all of them newly arrived migrants in the local area, to produce a series of portraits.
Throughout the project, individuals took an active role in how they were represented. Thinking about places that, in some way, are associated with their lives in London, each individual decided where and how they would be photographed as well as providing the text that accompanies their portrait.
The resulting work offers a glimpse into life for new arrivals, their challenges, the ups and downs and the experiences we all share as Londoners.
Admission is free.
