Gideon Mendel has created a powerful installation using objects he gathered during visits to the ‘Jungle’ refugee camp in Calais.

By focusing on items such as toothbrushes, playing cards, worn-out trainers, teargas canisters, and children’s dolls, Mendel conjures alternative portraits of the ‘Jungle’ residents that also stand in for the plight of displaced people everywhere. 

Gideon’s book of photographs and writings by people who lived in the camp, Dzhangal, is out on January 28, and the exhibition runs at Autograph ABP in Shoreditch until February 11, 2016.
