Publisher's Description

Swiss photographer René Groebli visited London in 1953 and by chance encountered Beryl Chen, a young woman recently arrived in the city along with a wave of other immigrants seeking a better future. Her Jamaican mother and Chinese father far away, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery and affirmation, and agrees to be photographed by Groebli. Using black-and-white images made with his Leica camera, he mixes reportage and artful storytelling in an attempt to document her life in this new, formidable city. Perhaps she will find her purpose, or happiness; perhaps she will find even love. Now, 60 years later, this previously unpublished series of images finally comes to light.
