Photo Portrait Project
'We Are Here, Because You Were There: Afghan Interpreters in the UK' documents experiences of Afghan interpreters, employed by the British Army who recently resettled to the UK, through portraiture and quotes. Centering Afghan interpreters’ own stories, photographer Andy Barnham and researcher Dr. Sara de Jong (University of York - also co-founder Sulha Alliance) invite viewers to engage with the people behind the headlines.
Portraits from the project were winners in the portraiture category of the 2022 Prix de la Photographie, Paris (PX3), Tokyo International Foto Awards, the ND (Neutral Density) competition, Monochrome Awards, and nominated for the Prix Pictet: Human Cycle.
The art catalogue can be purchased here (minimum donation £10 with 100% of the proceeds going to the Sulha Alliance).
The catalogue presents the portraits and stories of 14 Afghan interpreters in England, Scotland and Wales, who arrived in the UK since the summer of 2021.
