In The Valleys With Elijah Thomas

In his latest zine, Elijah Thomas, who now resides in manchester heads back to the Valleys to shine some light on a collection of people and places that are largely forgotten in the eyes of the media.

In this project Elijah explores the way in which small towns with a strong sense of community have been affected by the arrival of immigrants from Europe in the last century. The influence that these have had on local culture is portrayed. He was struck by the fact that this area voted in favour of Brexit. A place which has relied so heavily on so much EU funding in the past.
