United Kingdom, London 01 June 2023:  The opening of “Windrush: A Voyage through the Generations” photography exhibition, on display at Clapham Library, which runs from 1 June - 2 September 2023. Pictured: Jim Grover (left), Alford Gardner, 97 (centre) and Patrick Vernon at the Windrush: A Voyage through the Generations exhibition by Jim Grover. In celebration of the 75th anniversary of the arrival of MV Empire Windrush, award-winning documentary photographer Jim Grover’s exhibition explores how the generations which followed the Windrush Generation are living their lives in the UK today.  The set of 70 colour photographs, which include nine themed photo stories, shine a light on both individuals, groups and organisations in south London, who together are doing so much to preserve their distinctive Caribbean heritage and traditions for current and future generations. Many are inspiring female-led narratives.  The photographs portray an extraordinary level of intimacy and show the full range of human emotions, from great joy but also sadness and loss, reflecting the many changes since 2018, some of them personal and some as a result of world events. The exhibition opens with a new photo-story of 97-year-old Alford Gardner, one of just two known remaining adult passengers from that landmark 1948 voyage, who is enjoying a new level of recognition and fame since 2018.
