Valid for travel
'I had to spend one hour in a box while crossing the border ' 'Valid for Travel' is a project that has been built up as an extended documentary series focusing on the condition of Syrian refugees in the United Kingdom. Currently it is estimated that around 4 million Syrians have left their country and that approximately 3000 have chosen the United Kingdom as shelter. 'Valid for travel' brings together a range of photographic images and personal testimonies as a means to engage with this issue beyond the simplified stereotypes created around immigration. The project aims to raise awareness of the situation in which these people have been put, fleeing the conflict in their homeland.
