Entry Description

Jamaican fugitive living in a former dutch prison and prison cell. Because of his nature, being gay and a dragqueen, Diva is not safe at home and is forced to begin a new life in a unknown country and city. Next to other fugitives from Siria, he lives in a former prison cell. Being free has a price. As a photorapher I found it very interesting to document his life here in the former prison. The building is scary, you can almost feel the former prisoners craving for freedom the way Diva is doing right now.
