Hinterlands

 

February 2016 marked the beginning of the eviction and demolition process of the latest ‘jungle’ in Calais. My objective was to document the lives of the people who depended on Calais throughout this turbulent year. Misinformation and sensationalism in the British media has in my opinion obscured our understanding of this humanitarian crisis, it was my intention therefore to use photography as a tool of empowerment and understanding rather than one of judgement, and to tell the stories of hope for the future.
