“They fled from Afghanistan, Eritrea, Iraq, Ghana, and Kurdistan. They’re young, male and many, and still waiting in Calais for their chance to reach the greener grass of the UK. It’s a story that was meant to have come to an end, but in reality was driven to the wilds. Swiss photographer and World Press winner Jean Revillard has made a series of dreamy pictures of their scruffy makeshifts, built in the wooded areas of Calais that the French police call the ‘jungle’, but the human tragedy he interprets is nothing short of a nightmare.”
