Remain weaves a haunting narrative as Hoda Afshar’s lens follows a group of stateless men who remain on Manus Island despite the centre’s closure in 2017. This collaborative work documents a series of intersecting stories told against the verdant backdrop of Manus Island, where each of the men recounts their journey and growing sense of desperation on hopelessness.
