Conditions for Living

These images focus on the sense of dislocation that occurs while being ‘in-between’, documenting the temporary enclaves of displaced migrants in Northern France and their attempts to cross to the UK. As foreigners in a foreign land, they are neither ‘here’ nor ‘there’. They arrive on the edges of town overnight, attempting to assimilate themselves into a new and strange environment. There is a tedium that occurs while being ‘in-transit’ but also anticipation and hope for what they perceive will one day be home.
