Homelands is a series of portraits of people who came to live and work in the North East of England and the memories and experiences they brought with them.

Homelands portrays the diversity of cultures in the region and the struggle of integration in a society that cannot speak their language.

Beside each portrait are memories and experiences, handwritten in the persons own language, that convey the feeling of frustration and isolation that is experienced when trying to communicate in a country that is not your own.
