Publisher Note

Homes by Harley Weir shows photographs made between 17 and 28 October 2016 in the migrant and refugee camps of Calais. Taken immediately before and during the clearing of this provisional settlement, Weir’s images bear witness to the humanity and ingenuity of those living there - constructing the domestic and familiar against a backdrop of displacement.

The photographs show us the homes and private spaces of the camp. In the face of oppression and indifference from those most poised to provide assistance, Homes shows a stubborn commitment to the small, personal spaces of humanity within the Calais camp.
