Islelanders is a photographic art project which is based on my broad experience as a photojournalist with the Times of Malta and Reuters, documenting the lives of asylum seekers and migrants through and after their journey across the Mediterranean Sea.
The project will take place throughout 2014 with the aim of exploring the development and impact of artistic photography on the general public through different platforms:
• New media: blog and social media
• Art Exhibition: Photographic art exhibition
• Coffee Table Publication: Photographic publication in large format
Timeline: The project will commence in January 2014 with the launching of an online blog supported by a number of social media platforms. This online platform will also serve as a marketing tool to promote the planned coffee table publication and the photographic exhibition.
Throughout January – November, I will continue to develop new elements for the project and explore the subject from different photographic angles, with particular emphasis on integration and daily life. These will be juxtaposed with retrospective images, with the aim to highlight a decade of development and change in Malta.
The project is supported by the Malta Arts Fund, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), Avantech – Canon, Ernst & Young Malta Limited, M.Demajo Group, Frank Salt and Photo INK.
