It has been an absolute honour to work with Refugee Resource women’s service on this project. Each portrait has been a real collaboration between me and the sitter; we played, experimented and developed a mutual trust. It’s not easy dropping your guard in front of the lens, it can feel very exposing, but I can’t thank the women enough for trusting in the project and allowing me to capture a tiny bit of their inner self. They are all incredibly inspiring women and the photographs are such a celebration of all refugee, immigrant and migrant women in the city.
