100 Stories of Migration

Migration Museum

  • 30 March - 15 May
  • Heritage Gallery

In 2013, A competition run in association with the Guardian asked for images that said something about migration to the people submitting them. It attracted about 900 contributions, from amateur and professional photographers, all of whom wrote about why they had selected that particular image. From these contributions, a judging panel selected 100 images they considered the most resonant, and these formed the basis of this exhibition, first displayed in Hackney and subsequently, Senate House (London), the offices of Freedom from Torture and the School of Museum Studies in Leicester University. The exhibition has now come to the Heritage Gallery in The Old Royal Naval College, University of Greenwich.
