Silent Voice, 2007
‘silent voice’ is a sensitive and personal insight through one man’s story into the political issue of the integration of asylum seekers into society. Through the poignancy of small details, these documentary photographs combined with ‘Momo’s’ poetically-transcribed words provide a narrative which engages the reader visually and emotionally with what it actually feels like to be of no place, homeless and citizenship less.
