Refugees, Northern Europe

Ongoing……..


There are currently around 1500 refugees living in northern France. They are sleeping rough in the worst conditions and are not allowed to even have tents for shelter from the elements. Their sleeping bags and possessions are regularly confiscated by the police as, since the closure of the ‘Jungle’ camp in October 2016, the authorities are determined to prevent another permanent camp from reforming. This is an ongoing project documenting the situation in conjunction with the charity Care4Calais.
