Calais Jungle 2016
Calais is on France's northern border with England. The Calais Jungle, becomes one of the largest refugee camps in northern Europe. Her migrants have built a small "city" in the mud waiting to cross illegally the 43 miles that separate them from England. Some want to reunit with what is left of their families; others have simply lost everything and want to rebuild their lives away from wars they do not feel are their own; others simply dream of a better world and think they can find it in England.
Jungle Calais is home to families, children, and, for the most part, people up to 30 years old who have survived grueling journeys. Despite th brutal conditions these migrants find themselves in, the hope and desire to make it through are still in their eyes and in their their stories.
