In February 2016 I was one of the many young adults, to join an international humanitarian network helping refugees stranded in Greece. I followed and worked with numerous groups, Hot Spots and organisations in the 14 months after my first trip there. Functioning as a photographer with my DSLR for charity and press occasions, I relied on an Instant Camera to capture my personal perspective on what I experienced and the connections I made whilst being there.
