This project addresses the theme of race, integration and culture within UK cities. I aimed to provide a better understanding of the realities of living in society when you are a person of colour, and the prejudices that entail.
I focused heavily on communities and the strength that comes with them, and how living amongst people who share your culture allows you to stay in touch with it.
I based this work in Bristol and London, around my local communities in St Pauls and Easton. I also travelled to Spitalfields Markets and Wentworth Street in London, where I met the people running small businesses selling food and fabric.
I interviewed Rosa; founder of Bristol and Avon Chinese Women’s Group, and also interviewed people closer to home – such as my Aunt and Father – on growing up in a black community in a predominately white town.
