Power of Faces Theresa Menders, Daniel Farber Huang
September 10 - November 30
Images from the global photojournalism project by Theresa Menders and Daniel Farber Huang will be on display on the second floor of the library through November 30. Realizing that most of the nearly 69 million people displaced to refugee camps lost treasured family photos when they fled their homes, Menders and Huang bring photo printers into refugee camps around the globe, where they distribute portraits for individuals to keep. The context of refugee camps is intentionally cropped out of the images to focus on individuals, and not merely their label as “refugees”. This photojournalism project humanizes the plight of refugees and illuminates their experiences.
