Platforma – “You can see me, but I don’t exist.”

Alan is working with Platforma, the Arts and Refugees network, on a project that highlights the experience of refugees living in limbo whilst awaiting a response to their asylum or residency applications.

He has chosen to photograph the refugees using a camera obscura: “I am using a Camera Obscura to keep the background in sharp focus while the human figure is blurred – reflecting the reality of having lives lived in limbo and often not acknowledged by official bodies.”
