Points of Departure: Photography of African Migrations
Tue. 21 October 2014 - 1 February 2015 | Sainsbury Centre opening hours
Photographers Hélène Amouzou, Mamadou Gomis and Judith Quax, examine the transatlantic West African slave trade and contemporary migration. How can a still image capture the movement of migration? How can the still image reflect the problems of (dis)connection, experienced by the migrants and the families they have left behind? Migration is a major political concern of our time. More people than ever are on the move in search of a better future – but migrants who travel in pursuit of employment are sometimes seen by their hosts with ambiguity, accused of ‘stealing’ jobs. It is a matter on every politician’s mind.
