A young homeless person sleeping under a Christmas tree near the station in Richmond upon Thames, one of the wealthiest areas in the UK.
Homelessness in the UK reached record numbers and thousands of people, men and women, young and old, even children will wake up in a tent, on a street or a train station on Christmas day.

On this afternoon on the day after the fire I spoke to many people: Friends of Grenfell Tower residents, neighbours, community members, volunteers, firefighters, police officers.
I heard many terrifying and shocking stories about loss and narrow escape, met neighbours in shock of what happened and community members angry that a disaster like this was possible in 2017 Britain. But I saw the kindness of helpers and volunteers as well and I tried to capture this in some of my pictures.
This image symbolises the Grenfell disaster like no other for me: the uncertainty and sorrow of the Grenfell tower families but as well the kindness and compassion of strangers.
A personal note: For many days I considered whether I should publish the image. This is a picture showing the reality on this evening after the fire, not hiding and not adding anything. This father went public, shared his story and engaged with journalists, and therefore I decided to share this powerful image with you.

A snippet from an interview I did a few days ago as part of my “We’re Out!” project with friends who are leaving the UK after a long time here. The audio recording was meant to help me with the write up only, but I found it so interesting that I’ll share some of it.

For my “We’re Out!”-Projekt, a photographic journey through a changing Britain, I am looking for Brexit voters and Remainers, for people who plan to leave the UK or will stay here, Europeans, Brits, everyone who is open to share their story and is available for a portrait and contextual photo shoot.
I am not a journalist, I won’t publish what you haven’t agreed to, I am interested to document change that affects you and all of us. The photos and stories may form a book at some point and a collection of prints to show.
