‘Welcome to Our Jungle’ is a participatory photography project based in the refugee camp known as the ‘Jungle’ in Calais, giving a much needed voice to those directly affected by the crisis. Participatory photography involves empowering participants by giving them the skills to tell their own stories.
We have been working with a group of people (men, women and children) in the refugee camp known as the ‘Jungle’ since October 2015, in an attempt to provide a counter narrative to the negative and unbalanced rhetoric broadcast in the mainstream media.
We hope you enjoy the work.
