#christmas island

The Christmas Island Detention Centre is one of the five Immigration Detention Centres belonging to Australia. Back in 2016, it facilitated 167 asylum seekers. The centre remains a controversy, there were protests against the operation, with one death of an asylum seeker back in November 2015.

The island is an Instagrammable tourist destination.

My publication aims to explore two polar sides of Christmas Island, through visual juxtaposition.
