REFUSEE - Sergey Ponomarev
17.10-18.11.2016

This exhibition features 60 captivating photographic works by Sergey Ponomarev, winner of 2016 Pulitzer Prize and World Press Photo Contest.
“Refusee” represents the Gestalt of the words, namely “Refugee”, “Refuse” and “See”, which reflects the dilemma of the current refugee crisis in Europe.
The works of Sergey provide an alternative perspective to “see” the problem. He addresses the crisis through a humanitarian lens, focusing on the people who were less fortunate to be born in the troubled area of the global village. Their journey began in war, poverty and oppression, and continues to an unknown destiny. So they walked. So we choose or refuse to see.
