Illustrations for Re:public

A couple of weeks ago I made these illustrations for a magazine called Re:public. The article is about the REVA project. (The abbreviation REVA stands for Legal Certainty and Effective Enforcement, and seeks to boost the effectiveness of enforcement of deportations). The operation is carried out by the Swedish police together with the Swedish prison service and migration service. 

These kind of stories/articles are usually illustrated with documentary type photographs, and of course in this case that was not possible since it is about people living in hiding, who need to remain anonymous. But I tried to create a couple of scenes, and photograph them from different angles in a way that would be similar to documentary news-photography. I really like how you can get so many photos and details from just one built illustration. In a way this technique is as time-efficient, as it is time consuming.
