2B HUMAN EXHIBITION: Seeking Refuge
July 1 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 12:00 pm, repeating until July 4, 2021
Seeking Refuge is a photographic project led by Bournemouth based fine art photographer and community activist Caroline Beale Johnson. It shows images and words from the lives of refugees and migrants currently seeking asylum and living in Bournemouth.
For this project Caroline selected and worked with six emerging and established photographers to provide an insight into the lives of the displaced migrant community. The work reveals the lives of the refugees and migrants, not from afar, but from the inside.
This exhibition will introduce you to seven people who left places as diverse as Syria, Venezuela and Sudan and with lives as varied as a secondary school headteacher, a photographer with his own studio, and a student at school.
During the time they spent together, the photographers learned about what people were escaping from, and what rich and full lives they left behind.
