Join us to hear Photo Fringe exhibitor Samuel Fordham discuss his project 'C-R92/BY', focusing on family separations forced by the British immigration process.

How can you maintain a relationship with a family member who has been physically and geographically removed from your life and reduced to a two-dimensional image?

With his own wife facing the possibility of deportation, Fordham weaves together a reflection of his own experience with those of other families using images, documents and testimonies to explore the hardships of detention and the fight for family life.

The Photo Fringe digital exhibition of 'C-R92/BY'can be viewed on our festival website along with an interview with Samuel by Photo Fringe 2020 Trainee Curator Flynn McDonnell.
