Portraits of Kurdish children in exile by photographer, Tori Ferenc

Words by Tori Ferenc

Portraits of Kurdish children in exile. Grande Synthe is a quiet neighbourhood on the outskirts of Dunkirk, France. It is also an area where many refugees have been moved after the evictions in Calais. Under a constant threat from nationalist groups and located between a busy motorway and railway tracks, it is a place where Kurdish kids live, play and grow up.

Tradition

Photographer, Tori Ferenc captures the children of a North East London, Jewish community during the festival of Purim

Words by Tori Ferenc

More than 30,000 Hasidic Jews live in Stamford Hill, a neighbourhood in North East London. During Purim festival, the community celebrates the saving of the Jewish people from Haman. As the tradition has it, children dress up in phenomenal costumes and parade in the streets as Rubik’s Cubes, princesses, Virgin Atlantic stewardesses and popcorn boxes.

As a publisher and Community Interest Company, TRIP is dedicated to showcasing unconventional stories that may otherwise be overlooked. We aim to give a platform to the unseen and a microphone to the ignored. Expression is a right and should not be confined to those that can afford to work for free; which is why we strive to support a diverse range of creatives in their work, commissioning exciting projects and creatives to visualize them.
 

Founded as a magazine in 2013 by photographer, Dean Davies, TRIP was born from a desire to provide opportunity and exposure for image-makers across multiple platforms and medias. With a focus on people and place, in 5 years TRIP gained a loyal readership, and became known for its honest image output and representation of the underrepresented, featuring over 800 image-makers from across the world through a website, 5 magazines and 3 free zines.
 

As TRIP C.I.C. we are not interested in profiting from the activities of the organization, and re-invest all income back in to consecutive publishing projects.
