Photographic Storytelling at Vanessa Quang Gallery
In March 2012 - one year after the artist Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen completed filming Promised Land he returned to Calais in France to take a series of photographs of the hideouts and hidden camps inhabited by
migrants whilst staying in Calais. It was a disturbing and almost apocalyptic sight, but the abandoned camps and hideouts also allowed for a more optimistic reading: That the migrants in the camps had managed to move
on and perhaps made it to the destinations that they had risked their lives to reach.
