“The Worldwide Refugee Crisis: 
A Long View With an Emphasis on Greece”

Starting with the most recent refugee crisis in Greece, and continuing with dramatic images of wars in Chechnya, Afghanistan, the first and second Iraqi Gulf wars and many others, this exhibition bears witness to the indomitable spirit of displaced people trying to find better lives for themselves and their families.

Yannis Behrakis is a Greek photojournalist and chief photographer with Reuters. For more than 30 years, Behrakis has been winning awards for his war photography with a focus on the flow of refugees and migrants all over the world. His work on the Greek refugee crisis won him and his team a Pulitzer Prize in 2015. In 2017, Behrakis was appointed senior editor of special projects and ambassador for the Reuters photo department.
