“Where are you from?”
A loaded question for sure – for those of us who have migrated from our home countries, this question is nuanced, complex and most of the time, triggering. The statement often really asks, why are you other?
Stylist Rishy Malik teamed up with waxxwork duo Timothy Casten and Vikesh Govind to create 'Displaced', a fashion photography project, borne out of the experiences of growing up in “the west" as people of colour. The series explores themes of identity, heritage and feelings of displacement. A celebration of all the different lives and pathways the group have navigated.
