Sam Ivin (BJP Photographer)


Ivin will host an interactive workshop based on his explorative project in Stoke-on-Trent titled 'Settling: A Photographic Archive'. Participants will draw from their own experiences to create personal histories of migration through the medium of photography, focussing on the circumstances that brought them to Cambridge. Ultimately, the histories recorded through this workshop will assist in creating an archive on the expansive narrative of settling in the city of Cambridge.

Sam Ivin, contributing BJP photographer, whose project Lingering Ghosts (http://www.samivin.com/lingeringghosts/) was featured in the above BJP issue. His process involves capturing and defacing of passport-like images of asylum seekers. His images highlight the effacing of dignity and identity experienced by asylum seekers and refugees in the current anti-migration political climate.
