About the Exhibition

This photographic exhibition takes a view of the refugee situation which still exists in Northern France.

Hundreds of refugees brave the weather, cruel policing and terrible living conditions with the hope of making the seemingly impossible journey to the UK. The destruction of the ‘Jungle’ at Calais has caused the spread of migrants across the area in to small temporary camps, although no longer the news the situation is much worse than it has ever been.

The exhibited work is taken from two trips made with the charity Care4Calais in 2018. Any profit made from the show will go towards further trips to work in Calais and expand the work and or will be donated to the Care 4 Calais charity.

The exhibition will be available to view in the Gallery at St James Wine Vaults throughout the festival.

Stephen F Evans

Stephen is a visual artist and a practicing commercial photographer. He is a member of National Union of Journalists (NUJ) and in parallel to his commercial work he uses documentary photography practice, inspired by his studies in phenomenology, to produce socially and politically driven bodies of work.

​His recent visual enquiries have led to his imagery being presented at exhibitions in Swansea and at the Copeland Gallery in London. This has also led to the production of his self published books ‘Operational Realism’’ and ‘Article 50.’.

In August 2017 Stephen presented his first solo exhibition ‘Folk Tale’ at the St James Gallery in Bath as part of the Bath Folk Festival.

In 2017 Stephen graduated with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography from Swansea College of Art. He has since been accepted to study for a Masters Degree in Photography at the University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol.
