"No One is Left Behind" - New Documentary and Photojournalism by young Black, Asian and Ethnic Minorities

13 July - 15 September 2022

This exhibition brings together a diverse and creative group of photographers from different backgrounds and cultures who are young and live in Europe. From the intimate photographs by Naomi Williams of her grandfather to the almost abstract photos by Le Quyen Nguyen. From Jimmi Wing Ka Ho’s black and white portraits that reveal a poetic interface between him, his subjects and the viewer as he explores complex political and societal questions to Hesther Ng's photographs from the Ukraine war.

An exhibition featuring Wing Ka Ho Jimmi, Renee Murray, Yuen Ching (Hesther) Ng, Le Quyen Nguyen, Nadine Scarlett, Médine Tidou, Naomi Williams and Henrique Wooding

Curated by Pierre Chukwudi Alozie


Black, Asian and Ethnic minorities are under-represented in European art galleries, especially in the field of documentary, photojournalism and press photography. This discipline is traditionally dominated by white male photographers because the structures themselves are prejudiced. The picture editor, the media outlets and commissioners are inevitably biased toward stories they recognise themselves in. Journalist organisations are beginning to effect change.  This will enable a new generation of young black, Asian and Ethnic minority photographers to start their careers.

These young people need to see and express themselves in their work which offers the opportunity to tell their own stories. Any storyteller looks out, observes, and then in the process of editing, looks in. This exhibition offers these young people the opportunity to see their interior worlds, otherwise drowned out by the majority, exteriorised for themselves and others to see.  Framed by the 12-star gallery at Europa House within a stone’s throw from Westminster, the seat of the UK parliament.

Mẹ chạy đến đâu? (Mother, where are you running to?)


Leaving your lineage behind

Your smile shifting into a vitality forgotten

Inheriting your tears of

Your oral tradition has taught me to fear

You have now begun to speak, I relive

The art of your storm

Reflected in me
