In 2016 Europe faced the worst refugee crisis since the Second World War. Calais, the border between France and the United Kingdom, became the unofficial home and final destination for many refugees fleeing conflict and poverty from Africa and the Middle East.
The Jungle, as it was formally known, became the hub for migrants to attempt to illegally enter the United Kingdom by any means possible. Even if it meant losing their life, it was a risk worth taking as they saw no future in mainland Europe. As an inexperienced first year student studying at Plymouth University, I visited the refugee camp and documented it. The series of images above illustrates the crisis as I saw it.
