Artist Statement

Meeting Place is an interactive exhibition centered around the stories of three individuals who currently reside in a Syrian refugee camp in Iraqi Kurdistan. Consisting of photo profiles and video interviews, the exhibition invites the audience to respond to the three subjects. Meeting Place explores how social understanding can be developed through the relationship between photographer, subject, and viewer, all of whom meet at the photograph.
