Talk: On Home – 20th Feb, 2017

There was a number of news stories that dominated 2016, and will likely go on to dominate the headlines in 2017. After looking into corruption for our January 2017 talk, in February we’re moving on to HOME with a talk from the duo behind John Radcliffe Studio, Daniel Castro Garcia and Thomas Saxby.

Daniel and Thomas will be discussing their work Foreigner, which forms a response to the media portrayal of migration into Europe in 2015 and 2016.

John Radcliffe Studio is the creative partnership of Daniel Castro Garcia and Thomas Saxby and is dedicated to film, photography and graphic design projects.

Daniel Castro Garcia is a London based photographer and film-maker. He studied Spanish and Latin American Literature at University College London and after graduating went on to work as an Assistant Director in the UK film, commercial and music video industry. Along side this profession; Daniel has been developing his photography practise. Having started out as a street photographer working on personal projects his work now focuses on social documentary and portraiture.

Tom Saxby has a BA in Graphic Design from the Camberwell College of Arts, and an MA in Humanitarian Design from the Design Academy Eindhoven. Since graduating, he has gained professional experience at studios in Germany, Italy and London.

‘Foreigner: Migration into Europe 2015–2016’, is the culmination of a year’s work spent documenting lives of people at various stages of their migration to Europe. The book is divided into three sections, focusing on migration to Italy from North Africa, migration to Greece and through the Balkans from the middle east, and the migrant camps in Calais, France and Idomeni, Greece. Alongside the photography, written texts serve both as a context, and a means to share the stories of the people we met during the project.

The book serves as an alternative to the imagery used by the mainstream media to depict Europe’s refugee and migrant crisis. We wanted to approach the subject from a calmer perspective, using photography as a means of meeting the people at the centre the crisis face to face – and of learning something about their lives.

This project was shortlisted for the Mack Books First Book Award, and is currently on the shortlist for the Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation First Book Award. It is available to buy through Antenne Books and Daniel and Thomas will have some copies to sell and sign on the evening.
