Wish we were not here

Starting in November 2015, Jungleye association launched a participatory photography project in informal refugee and migrant camps throughout Europe. This alternative photo essay intends to give a voice to migrants, allowing them a tool to give testimony to their everyday reality and to share their humanity. There pictures are then made into postcards, each with a custom caption from its photographer, with the aim to recreate a visual and transitive memory of their journey and in a spirit of raising awareness about current migratory issues.

Jungleye photographers and their work have been recognized and exposed several times with exhibitions having been held in Brighton, Brussels, Lille and Barcelona. Many media outlets have also written articles about Jungleye, including international newspapers such as Le Monde and The Guardian, as well as photography magazines like Actuphoto.

In a sensitive socio-political context regarding migratory questions, these postcards enable to undertake the first step towards the “Other”, from a distance. Activities are organized in public spaces and during exhibitions to sensitize people about refugees “situations”. Everyone is invited to write a comment on the postcard of their choice. Along with a correspondence, postcards are exchanged and shared. The shaping of a dialogue between people - migrating or not -is flowering.

With the support of MSF, Jungleye have realized several workshops in Katsikas camp, Greece, during summer 2016. These pictures are the result of their work with migrants there and are part of the global Jungleye project.
