FACE IT 2015

Face It 2015 is a portrait project exploring immigration, inspired by my own experience living overseas as well as the current debate on this complex issue back in Europe. 

In China I became a migrant, helping me empathise with those adapting to another culture, far from home. My work also provided a unique insight into perceptions of China from all over the world. Ones often very different from the reality I knew. This in turn led to a more nuanced view on life at home, and in particular the rhetoric around immigration. 

Face It 2015 aims to bring people connected to the issue. from all communities and levels of society, together on a level visual playing field. And through that create a more accessible, humanising counterpoint to media coverage. 

It's about brining art, the news agenda and social media together in a single, interactive space. Please check out the website here :
