“Annenberg Space for Photography’s REFUGEE”

Newseum to Open New Photo Exhibit on Dispersed and Displaced People




Sixty-five million people around the world are displaced, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). To bring attention to this crisis, the Newseum is opening a new exhibit on Nov. 18, 2016, featuring images taken by five internationally acclaimed photographers who traveled across five continents. The exhibit “Annenberg Space for Photography’s REFUGEE” depicts the lives of diverse populations dispersed and displaced throughout the world and includes stunning portraits of the new Americans, refugees recently settled in the United States.

This exhibit presents a full range of global refugee experiences through singular and compelling images taken in Bangladesh, Cameroon, Colombia, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Mexico, Myanmar, Serbia, Slovenia and the United States. The photographs capture the hope and resolve of refugees in the face of dehumanizing and life-threatening persecution.

On Thursday, Nov. 17, photographer Tom Stoddart is available to you and your listeners to discuss the exhibit and the courage of these exiled people around the world.
