Three photographers bring their varied perspectives on borders and migration into dialogue with each other on the border of the UK. Alice Myers worked for two years with refugees who were attempting to cross to the UK from Calais. Nikolas Ventourakis looks at the landscapes of bordering and Aida Silvestri explores the journeys and experiences of Eritrean refugees into the United Kingdom. All three photographers seek to open up discussion around borders and migration for more complex consideration.
