Description

Eleven photojournalists have followed the trek of refugees from their point of origin – the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa – into Europe through the various stopover sites in Greece and the Balkans. The photographs in this exhibition document the refugees’ unimaginable struggles on their way to safety but also their routine, everyday activities and small moments of joy. Covering some of the distance between refugees and us, the photographs remind us that these are ordinary people on an extraordinary journey. They also make the viewer party to the experience and perspective of these eleven eyewitnesses to a great humanitarian disaster.

Photographers: Milos Bicanski | Andrea Bonetti | Dimitrios Bouras | Louisa Gouliamaki | Yannis Kolesidis | John Liakos | Menelaos Myrillas | Nikos Paleologos | Anna Pantelia | Fotis Plegas | Orestis Seferoglou

An interview with some of the photographers in the exhibition can be found on the CRASSH blog.
