Away From Home is a series of photographs that will be exhibited at fortyfivedownstairs gallery in Melbourne, Australia. The exhibition will explore the dualities that surround the idea of home: between presence & absence, permanence & impermanence and belonging & displacement. The project engages in the lived experiences of liminality from the perspectives of the transnational diaspora from Burma. Away From Home investigates themes of migration, belonging, place and notions of home. These works aim to develop new understandings of the multidimensional complexities of being a refugee "“ both home and away "“ and expand on longstanding traditions of documentary photographic practice. At a time of increasing displacement and familial upheaval, it is important we take notice of how people get on in transcultural familial situations or how difference is lived on the ground.
