Home from Home
Home from Home is an ongoing project. It was one of the finalists of Migrants in Europe international multimedia competitio held by European Union in 2013.
This body of work explores the life of immigrants in Ireland and around Europe. It was made as a response to my own experience of leaving my home in Visaginas to seek work opportunities in Ireland. A common experience for migrants is that the qualifications and experience that they have gained in their own land does not necessarily enable them to work in a profession of their choice. It is this experience that I set about documenting.
If any of you or your friends are living in Ireland, UK, Germany, Sweden or Lithuania as an immigrant and willing to contribute to the project, please get in touch. I will be very interested to hear your story and to photograph you.
