100 images of migration
11 June 2013 - 31 August 2013
This exhibition displays 100 photographs about migration in and out of Britain, some of which were part of a competition run by the Migration Museum project. We have also added some local pictures to give it a Hackney flavour.
Photographers, both professional and non professional, have contributed pictures from all over the country, showing the great range of people who have come here over the last hundred years as adventurers or travellers, in search of work, education or adventure or as refugees escaping from war, poverty or oppression in their own countries.
Everybody has a story to tell, either of hardship or of achievement. Come and look at the pictures, read the stories and see some of the precious objects people brought with them.
