It’s simple, I arrive. I claim some space in Edinburgh. I build myself a dwelling. I take it down. Another day I try to be at home in another part of the world.

Part protest, part sculpture, part ceremony. I Am From Reykjavik is Sonia Hughes’ attempt to be a post-racial, global citizen. As borders close and identities become narrower how is it to bring your whole self anywhere?



A woman of the Global Majority sits facing the camera with her back to a wall. She is wearing a hat and zip up jacket. The photo is in black and white.
