Alice Myers, ‘Nothing is Impossible Under the Sun’

Besides the world famous Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, which every year rewards a photographer who has made the most significant contribution to the medium, the gallery runs a number of other initiatives. FreshFaced+WildEyed, for instance, is a prestigious annual photography competition with the aim of showcasing the best work for recent graduates. Alice Myers's project 'Nothing is Impossible Under the Sun' was selected this year, also it was the one that struck me the most. The project is about the hordes of clandestine migrants trapped in Calais, ''the French port closest to the United Kingdom. It is not known how many people attempt to cross the border here without documents.'' (Alice Myers) 'Nothing is Impossible Under the Sun' is a book combining drawings, writing and photographs shaping a complex representation of refugees and asylum seekers.
