A Photo-Essay by Jim Grover
FREE exhibition and interactive events

‘Windrush: Portrait of a Generation’ is the latest photo-story by award-winning social documentary photographer, Jim Grover. For 12 months Jim spent time with the Caribbean community in South London, capturing the very distinctive ways in which the first generation of Caribbean migrants are living their lives, true to their culture and traditions.

The resulting photo-story was first exhibited at gallery@oxo on London’s South Bank in May-June 2018, attracting extensive national media coverage and is now on display in east London as part of Tower Hamlets Council’s Black History Month programme. The exhibition also includes written life stories of members of the community.
