hello again, i'm back! i'm in the process of reviving my website, and i'm working on a few things over the next few months which is exciting. i've decided to go back to shooting with canon, and i'm selling some of my equipment to raise money for a full frame camera - it's all up for instant buy on my depop shop so if you're interested in something you can order it directly through the link! i'm going to list some more over the next week, here's what's there so far:
more info on the depop page.
the present refugee crisis has seen more than 11 million men, women and children displaced as they take the dangerous journey across europe to escape war and terror in their home countries. young unaccompanied teenage boys are one of the most at-risk groups of those uprooted from their homes. even when successful in arriving to a safe country like the uk, the struggle does not end for these vulnerable boys.
unable to work or study until their asylum application is processed, and isolated from the community, these boys are lonely, bored, and have very little independence. one such boy has decided to fill his time writing poetry. we present to you a book with no pages, by a poet with no papers.
by purchasing this book you will be supporting the young men like this poet; rendered aimless and adrift while they await their documents. for every £10 you donate we will send you a signed copy of the first collection of ho3ein’s writings alongside images from the citizen photo project that took place in the calais jungle earlier this year and were later shown at ‘papers’ festival at the barbican centre in london. every £30 donator will receive a signed copy plus 6 postcard-sized prints of each of the images used in the collection.
all proceeds of the sale of this book will go directly to supporting these vulnerable young men on the next part of their journey in the UK. when donating, please email email@example.com with your address for postage.

this is an open letter to the english and french governments that my good friend hassan from afghanistan wrote in farsi and translated himself. i managed to get it to one of the organisers of an event held in the good chance theatre in the jungle and it was read out to hundreds including jude law and matt berry who are two of his favourite british actors. he is 17.
“This is the first thing that I want to say that Jungle is just for animals not for humans. The governments of France and England must know. Second, from time when I come to this Jungle I didn’t see any human right and I think these two countries don’t accept us as human. Police behave like that with us that even someone not behave with animals. I don’t know from where I start what I have to say. We escape from our country to have a better life but I am tired of living here. Even we want to dead. Don’t know where I have to go. Who will listen to my words? The problems which I face to whom I must tell? Don’t know who will listen to me.
Life is like a prison for me now. We are also humans. We have the right to life. We have hopes to have a better life, a life with peace and friendly environment. Why you don’t understand us? Don’t you have feelings?
If we talk logically. Just one bomb attack happen in Paris and everyone scared very much. Even there are such families that didn’t left their houses for weeks. There is not such a single day that an attack or a bomb blast not happen in our country. Lots of people dies.
Is it your feelings? Is is the human right? Is it you only human? Or accept us to like a human. If you accept us as then do you give us these rights?
The government of England which is a super power can’t fit maximum 4000 people and accept them as migrants. Instead they give money to French government to make the border hard and harder each day and French government hate every refugees. Is it humans right?
If we talk about Calais police, behaviour which a human do with other human we can’t see in Calais police. One night I was in Jungle Books and try to go to the container camp. There was a ditch of water in road to Salam. Police car came and speed up and put all that water from the ditch on me and I totally get wet and I was really get sad. Even my eyes get wet because of behaviour of a human with other human.
