I met the two little twin sisters Success and Surprise through FutureHackney, a collective of photographers capturing portraits of East Londoners.

Despite a tragic history of destruction and emigration, the town has flourished into a beautiful open gallery, now hosting 18 large-scale murals organised by Vukovart. For this project, I chose to depict the theme ‘Home is where your heart is’: even if you may […]
