The David family in London has Iraqi and Syrian roots. They're one of the many families photographed by Chris Steele-Perkins to show London's diversity. Last year, 8.6 million people living in the UK were born abroad, with London being the most diverse area -- approximately 37% of people in the city are from other countries.
Joe Arojojoye, left, is from Nigeria, as are his mother, Adebimpe Ogunmokun, and his brother Michael Ashaolu. Photographing Londoners in their homes was something Steele-Perkins knew he wanted to do from the very beginning of his project. "I wanted the idea that they belonged here," he said. "They had a home. These weren't tourists. It wasn't standing in Trafalgar Square or something like that."
