Blind Spots is a photography project by Labour Arty that aims to document the everyday common spaces and places shared by migrant workers and locals. These scenes are often seen but not noticed, and offer momentary glimpses of intimacy and interaction that are laid bare, though at times not by choice.
The works featured in this exhibition include snapshots of the back of lorries that carry humans as cargo, as well as selections from partner projects.
