The last months have been a mix of shooting news, writing, moving, hanging exhibitions and finally going through all pictures of 2018. So in between all the paperwork and the not really visual assignments we have in Gothenburg it’s tricky to find the things I’m proud of or even want to show. In two weeks I’ll be back in Uganda trying to forget about everyday life in Sweden and just focus on finding the stories I want to tell. This pictures is from Esthers Minellas place in Bidibidi Refugee Settlement the day I left late August last year.

If you’re not a big fan of Santa hats just put on a pussy hat today. This is still one of my favorite picture of this year. During the ‘I can’t keep quite’ protests in Gothenburg in March Minoo Koefoed climbed up on Poseidon giving his fish a pussy hat.

Even though January started quite depressing with the inauguration of Trump, the day after halv a million people joined the Women’s March on Washington and millions joined the protest and movement around the world. In Sweden this started a new feminist movement and I’m glad to see the people who choose to change society for the better. . Looking back on the year these pictures of the Women’s March in Washington the 21st of January remind me of our revolution.

2017 has been wonderful and quite intense year. So to not forget about all the wonderful people I’ve met and all new places I’ve seen I end the year with going through all pictures. Some Terabyte of work but definitely worth it when all the memories come back. . January started with my first visit to the USA, in a time of Trump. I’ve tried to understand how that many people could vote for and still believe in a president who has a total disrespect for other people. . Let’s hope for a better year, with new events like our revolution and more people raising their voice agains injustice and violence.

Leftovers after the eviction of the southern half of the Jungle refugee camp in Calais early 2016. I remember walking around among burning shelters that once were homes. Looking at the ground. The things that were left when the French police came in the morning and families with children had to leave their homes once again. Running away from flames like back home in the war of their countries. I remember seeing the cover on a Iranien passport lying in the mud, reminding me of how privileged I am in having a German and a Swedish passport: free to travel, move and work in so many countries without ever being questioned. So many times that I wished that I could just give away one of my passports. This bloddy piece of paper that decides whether we’re good enough to live in a certain country or not. . These pictures are from my long term project in the refugee camp called Jungle in Calais, France. Before it was demolished in October last year 10 000 refugees were living here in temporary shelters. Today there’re still many refugees in and around Calais trying to join there families on the other side of the English Channel.

Today it’s been four weeks since Yassins father died in Syria. Yassin was living in the Jungle for almost a year but even after the refugee camp was demolished it took him eight months to get to UK. With his family living in Syria and Lebanon I remember him being constantly worried but still taking care of all his friends and neighbors and keeping an eye on me when being in the camp working at night. I still remember when he wrote me the 7th of May after arriving to England. About the fact that he had been too shy to ask for help and had been sleeping in the streets of Belgium and France and almost given up. In this picture from April 2016 he had just received a English Arabic dictionary from his friend in UK and was sitting in his shelter trying to talk to me and teaching me some Arabic. .

The Jungle was a refugee camp in the vicinity of Calais, France. According to Help Refugees 9106 men, women and unaccompanied children were living in mud, tents or temporary shelters they’d build themselves and decorate as best as possible. They all had the same goal: to enter the UK. . In October 2016 the eviction of the Jungle started and after three weeks the camp was demolished and the remaining refugees were moved to temporary asylum accommodations. Bedrooms, TV-halls, restaurants, living rooms and mosques were replaced by white walls in cold bedrooms shared with strangers. These are some of the walls inside the Jungle.

Police is patrolling around the clock at the beach near the ferry port of Calais. Here the refugees have up to four minutes to run along the one kilometer long open beach area and then get past the fences and hide on the other side before the next patrol has passed. There are only few who manage to get all the way to the ferry parking lot and who are not detected in the truck controls or scanner. Once on the ferry it takes 90 minutes to Dover in the UK. .

Dandan, Wessam and Ibrahim from Daraa in Syria met here in the fall of 2015 and moved in together shortly thereafter. Back then there were about 3500 refugees in the camp and new people arriving every day. In the north part of the Jungle they settled at an area for Syrians, mostly from Daraa. The first few months they tried to get on trains and trucks, but in the end they managed to collect money and chose to pay for smugglers. Even with smugglers they failed dozens of times. Since July 2016, all three are with their relatives in the UK and claimed asylum. . This picture is from my long term project in the refugee camp called Jungle in Calais, France.
