A nice cup of tea

Nice cup of tea

This year I am the photographer for a project called ‘A Nice Cup of Tea’. This is a programme of exhibitions, discussions and performances exploring the complex legacy of Empire, transatlantic slavery and trade, particularly in relation to Oxford City and Oxford University. It is in part to commemorate the arrival of the Empire Windrush in 1948, bringing migrants from the Caribbean to start a new life in Britain. We started talking about it long before the Windrush Generation became so prominent in the news. It now seems more important than ever to raise awareness of the complex issues surrounding this most British of beverages.
