Exhibition – Ethnic Cleansing

I have also been commissioned by the Oxford Human Rights Arts Festival to exhibit photographs about the persecution of gypsies and travellers, an issue that I have documented for 20 years.  The exhibition will run throughout the festival 24-28th February at the Old Fire Station.

The featured image is one from the exhibition – Police and bailiffs evict travellers and their supporters from Dale Farm, Basildon. Essex. © Jess Hurd/reportdigital.co.uk

Joint project with Beverley Carpenter, who kindly printed the images.
