Britain’s Yemenis comprise the country’s oldest established Muslim community.
This exhibition explores how and why Yemeni people came to Britain, and how their migration is linked to Yemen’s ancient role as a trading nation.
Tim Smith has photographed Britain’s Yemeni communities since the 1980s in Sheffield, Bradford and Newport.
He also travelled to Yemen to photograph former British residents and look at Yemen’s history and ancient role as a centre for trade.
The exhibition movingly documents Yemini workers’ integration into British society.
