For Journeys Festival International Leicester 2018, Iranian photographer Farhad Berahman was commissioned to develop a collection of large-scale postage stamps that symbolised a home for migrants. The work explored the theme of displacement and resettlement of communities. The images used in the stamp designs represent countries that have the highest number of refugees in the UK including Iran, Syria, Afghanistan and Sudan. The work will be reproduced and brought together in one location for the first time to celebrate Refugee Week 2019.
