The Journey of Transition

I’ve been invited to speak at the University of Bedfordshire’s first ever Refugee Week today.

I will be showing three sets of images at the event called the Journey of Transition.

Firstly the work I have done in France, called ‘Permanent
Displacement – Calais refugees from Sangatte to destitution

Secondly a set of images from the US/Mexico border called ‘Border Angels
– the story of Mexican refugees and the vigilante Minute Men.’

and the third series of images will be a celebration of the colourful
and innovative campaigns from around the world from Indonesian
domestic maids in Hong Kong to the Glasgow Campaign to Welcome Refugees.
