Island to Island: Dominica, Barbados and Britain

This Redbridge Museum exhibition displays stunning images by respected photographer Tim Smith. The exhibition uses photographs and people’s stories of migration to explore the close relationship between Britain and the Caribbean islands of Dominica and Barbados.

The exhibition comprises photographs of the Dominican community in East London and Bradford, as well as from the islands of Dominica and Barbados, where Tim Smith spent his childhood. These are complemented by his father’s rare photographs of everyday life on the islands during the 1960s.
