What is it like to be a refugee or an asylum seeker in London in 2016?
So much of what we read and so many of the images we see come from a western perspective. We wanted to offer a different view.Working in collaboration with photographer and journalist James Hopkirk, we gave four of our clients cameras (loaned very kindly by Brixton charity Photovoice) and asked them to share their experiences. James ran workshops offering storytelling and photography advice – but our clients decided what stories they wanted to tell, and it is their photographs and words we present here.We’re proud to publish these unique photo stories – we hope you find them as enlightening and moving as we have. Please help us to continue supporting refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants in south London by making a donation or by volunteering – click here to find out how you can help.Celia Sands, Director, South London Refugee Association, June 2016
