Stories of Home is a portrait of the Central and Eastern European communities who live in Sandwell, home to the biggest Polish population in the UK. This is a collaborative body of work with Multistory – based in West Bromwich, West Midlands.
The photographs document and celebrate the everyday aspects of people’s lives – at work or home, at school or a celebration. It was made during a two-year period against a backdrop of divisive geopolitical rhetoric following the 2016 EU referendum. It explores the human connection: what binds a community; and what is important about our surroundings that make a place home.
