Abdul saboor


Abdul is from Afghanistan and currently lives in Paris, France. He arrived in Paris in October 2017. He has documented the Balkan Route from Afghanistan to the EU and continues to document the lives of asylum seekers in Paris. During the months he travelled, he used his smart phone as a tool to remember his home as well as to speak out about the difficulties migrants face.

Abdul met Good Chance Theatre in Paris in January 2018. Sine then, he has become a key member of the theatre and photographed many of Good Chance’s performances along with local artists and refugees from across the world. View his photographs in the gallery below.

We’re thrilled that Abdul’s photographs will feature in an exhibition at St Ann’s Warehouse in New York in December 2018 and January 2019 alongside acclaimed photographers and photojournalists from across the world.

“In the pictures I took at Good Chance Theatre, the refugees seem really happy. They seem happy because there, in theatre, no one talks about borders”
