London’s my favorite place on the planet and the reason for that is its fantastic diversity. I suppose I look at people and think about the journeys that their parents may have made to get them here. I think about the journey my grandparents made - my grandparents are immigrants from Spain and Holland, so it’s not quite the same, but I think about what pushed them out of their countries and how fortunate I am to grow up here and to not take that for granted.

“I’m not special, I’m no more accountable for what’s going on than anyone else in the world. All I have is a platform. If I can use it to open a few people’s eyes and promote a little bit of compassion, then that’s a good thing, I suppose.” | Douglas Booth for Mr Porter’s 5th Anniversary Issue
