Eu Migrants Portraits

During the campaign before the UK’s referendum on EU membership in 2016 there was little emphasis on the positive aspects of migration. I made this series of portraits of people, who would most likely not have been able to come to this country if we had, as was much touted, an “Australian-style” points system. I wanted to show respect for the hard work of all types of migrants in our society, not just those who already have a profession or a degree when they come here.
