Teresa Eng, a Chinese-Canadian photographer, captures a moment in the life of Jessica, a young make-up artist from Elephant and Castle, south London. Eng wants to show how second and third-generation families view their local community, in the process subtly subverting perceptions of immigrants living in the UK.

The photo appears in Kaleidoscope, an exhibition at Somerset House in London exploring themes of identity and immigration in modern Britain. The 10 artists on show use their own stories to encourage a wider appreciation of the nation’s multiculturalism.
