Since the Syrian War began in 2011, millions of Syrians have been displaced from their homes and their country. You’ve already seen tragic images of Syrians desperate to get out. What you haven’t seen is what happens next.
After a 25-year hiatus, Michael S Cohen returned to photography with an idea, to travel and meet successfully resettled Syrian refugees, and to photograph and interview them. The exhibit profiles twenty Syrians who fled their war-torn homeland and resettled in new countries in Europe and North America. They have new homes and are building new lives.
