'New Londoners' life through a lens

The lives of 15 young asylum seekers - as seen through their own eyes - are captured in a unique book being launched at the Tate Modern in London.

'New Londoners' - a collaboration between two charities - features photos taken by the young people who were mentored by professional photographers.

For PM on Radio 4, reporter Andrew Bomford met three of the asylum seekers - Chalak and Hassan from Iraq, and Loria from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
