Four queer women defying the snow: Mikael Owunna's best photograph

‘Snow evokes the west, Europe, the far north – places that have historically been hostile to black people. So this is like an assertion: we’re going to take this place for ourselves’I shot this in Brooklyn in 2017. For four years, I had been working on a series about LGBTQ African immigrants in 10 countries, across North America, Europe and the Caribbean, but I had no group shots.

‘We’re used to seeing overcrowded vessels from Africa washing up on the shores of Europe. But here was one that had travelled the other way’I came across this ship in 2014, a few months into a long, slow journey I was making from Nigeria to Italy.

Then they’d wait until the next train was ready to take them to the Austrian border. It was like a conveyer belt. They would have to sit in no man’s ...
