Shubbak invites photographer Hassan Al-Mousaoy to work with recently arrived young people in West London, charting their daily lives in sequences of personal photographs. Participants will select, edit and install their work in the intimate setting of the Bush Theatre Attic. The images follow the rhythm of their day.
Based in London for 11 years, Hassan Al-Mousaoy’s unique project My Life in Pictures brought together images taken by young Iraqis from his first visit back to Iraq with images by young migrants in London.
It is free entry and the exhibition is unticketed.
