Immigrants @ Soho Photo Gallery

© Photograph by Peter Turnley, July, 2006, Tijuana, Mexico.

September 30 – October 19, 2019

OPENING RECEPTION Tuesday, October 1, from 6-8 p.m

“Twelve artists have been brought together to explore stories from across the globe and across history – the Middle East, Europe, the Americas and beyond, from the 19th century to the present. The images they have created tell of people on the move, some by choice and many not, some motivated simply by a desire for a better life, many driven by extreme violence and poverty: Syrians in refugee camps; Haitian immigrants; Yazidi women, former ISIS slaves, establishing new lives in Canada; people on the road north from Central America; immigrants living both legally and without status in the United States. ”
