Sumer, 28 – painter.
I moved from my home in Mandawa when I’d just turned twenty. It’s a place of strong community, so it makes the distance easy to cope with. My childhood friends are still my friends. Phones help too, but it can be hard to end a call sometimes. 15 minutes later and I’m still there.”
“Paint is always the best bit isn’t it?” This was the first thing Sumer said to us as we passed by. We hadn’t even said hello yet.
