“Never before our time have so many people been uprooted.
Emigration, forced or chosen, across national frontiers or from village to metropolis,
is the quintessential experience of our time.”
– John Berger (2005)
Ten years forward from this statement and the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time – the European Migrant Crisis – is happening.
My work is in response to the unimaginable numbers of refugees who have tried to make it to Europe, in an exploration of what people take with them and what they leave behind.
