Affected by Detention: Photography exhibition at The Island
Photography work by 3 individuals who have all been affected in different ways by immigration and detention.
The work will be accompanied by the words and voices of those from the project.
What goes on in our immigration system and inside detention is often kept very hidden and those with experience are not always able to speak out.
Those involved all had very different approaches to the work they made and responses to their individual experience of immigration and detention. This exhibition is a chance to hear directly from those who have been impacted.
