Windrush: Portrait of a Generation

A photo-essay by Jim Grover

FIRST EXHIBITED

The photo-story was first exhibited at the gallery@oxo on London's South Bank, May 24th-June 10th, 2018.

Alford Gardner, one of the tiny number of survivors from the original Windrush voyage, was the guest of honour on the opening night.

The exhibition was widely covered by the media.

The exhibition attracted a remarkable 12,831 visitors over its 17 day run, including 2,508 on the last week-end.  63% of visitors were 'BAME' ('Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic').

The first edition of the accompanying book sold out almost immediately.

~2,400 comments were made in the visitor book.
