In the months I spent photographing EU nationals and listening to their stories the common theme that emerged was that for a migrant the concept of home is rarely static.
When we decide to move away and leave behind the comfort and security of our country of birth – our original home – we begin to construct another identity for ourselves. An identity in which resilience and adaptability become the essential building blocks, but that can’t be forged successfully without a strong sense of belonging.
The Brexit vote has shaken that sense of belonging for many of us, and has made us really question, perhaps for the first time, our place in the world. Do we belong in this country? If not, where is “home”?
