Join us at the gallery from 5-7pm for the opening reception of Nowhere People: The Children. We are excited to announce that the photographer, Greg Constantine, will be present and giving a talk with time for Q&A begining at 5:30pm.
Nowhere People: The Children captures a moment in time in the lives of stateless people, and tries to reveal the essence of their condition. It not only exposes the hardships stateless people endure, it also highlights the sheer courage and perseverance they have to adapt, overcome adversity and find ways to survive from one generation to the next.
