Sounds Unseen: A Photographic Memoir of The Calais Sessions chronicles a collaborative music project between musicians living in the UK and musicians living in the temporary refugee camps of Northern France.
Between December 2015 and May 2016, photographer Sarah Hickson made a number of visits to the temporary refugee camps of Northern France to photograph The Calais Sessions – a live music project among musicians living in the UK, the ‘Jungle’ camp in Calais, and La Grande Synthe in Dunkirk. For the refugees she met, The Calais Sessions provided a welcome opportunity to tell their stories, to play and share the music from their homelands, or to pick up an instrument and join with other musicians. Sounds Unseen: A Photographic Memoir of The Calais Sessions chronicles the evolution of this remarkable collaboration and celebrates a vital human connection forged through the common voice of music.
