A series of photography portraits of refugees, former refugees and asylum seekers in Europe, that I made – together with other 40 refugee storytellers – for the international NGO Witness Change as part of the 1000 Dreams project.
1000 Dreams is a global movement to change the narrative of the refugee experience. Refugee stories have always been told by outsiders. They have often been toxic or paternalistic. 1000 Dreams counters prevailing narratives by supporting refugees to tell their own stories - their strengths, their challenges, their dreams - for themselves.
