I’m chuffed to be part of the This Separated Isle exhibition at Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow at the moment.
The show features all the portraits from the beautiful book edited by Paul Sng – mine is of Owen Haisley, whose story I covered for Big Issue North.
Owen – who was born and lived for four years in Jamaica – lost his right to remain in the UK after serving a short prison sentence. He had spent over 40 years in the UK, never leaving the country. The result is that he now lives in limbo – unable to work and enjoy the same freedoms that most British citizens enjoy. It’s an outrage.
Thank you to Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert for the installation photo. You can order the book here.
