Loose Joints have released a book by photographer Harley Weir. Homes contains 39 colour plates across 60 pages with a silkscreened and foil-embossed cover. The book’s images were taken over 10 days between 17 and 28 October in Calais’ refugee camps before and after the temporary settlements were emptied and destroyed, showing the camp’s domestic and intimate private spaces.

Publisher Loose Joints says “we have worked alongside Harley for the past 10 days to turn around this project, which was made last month and we feel documents a crucial and necessary human perspective to picturing migration.”

The book, published in an edition of 500, is available exclusively via Loose Joints’ website with all proceeds donated to French charity La Cimade which protects and defends the rights of refugees and migrants.
