calais 2017

the calais refugee camp in france held 10,000 people in 2016, many of whom attempted to get to the uk by illegally boarding trains

these photos were taken between france and the uk with a camera fixed to one such train filming at 1 frame every 10 seconds

the resulting unedited random images are an attempt to recreate the glimpses of the outside world as seen by these stowaways

of the 1.2 million migrants who tried to reach europe in 2016, over 5000 died en route - 100 for each photo in the series
