The Faces of the Syrian Refugee Crisis – An Oxfam Photo Exhibit at Workbar
The resilient and courageous faces of the Syrian refugee crisis are part of a new photography exhibit in Workbar Cambridge. The international NGO Oxfam, which is headquartered in Boston’s North End, donated some of their most moving images for the exhibit. Their mission is to “right the wrongs of poverty, hunger, and injustice,” and Workbar will be hosting an event on the topic on March 29th. You can preview some of the astonishing photographs below.
“Many families exhausted by uncertainty are making the long and often dangerous journey into Europe in the hope of building better lives for themselves. It is their stories these pictures tell — from the makeshift dwellings they have called home for too long to the harrowing Mediterranean crossings they risk their lives to make. Captured by Oxfam photographer Pablo Tosco, the images here offer a glimpse into the hardships of forced exile and the fortitude of families who refuse to give up hope.” – Oxfam
