This work attempts to represent the hidden struggle experienced by African migrants who work as newspaper salesmen at traffic junctions on the fringes of Dublin city. Clad in Hi-Vis uniforms, these men weave in and out of traffic from morning to evening as if on a conveyer belt. Their bodies are highly visible in the landscape yet they are hidden in plain sight, forgotten among the concrete structures and road networks built to confirm prosperity and progress A set of invisible barriers make it difficult for these workers to escape from this environment. Through spending time with them, I learned about the reality of their working lives as well as their strong sense of resilience and resistance.
