A photographic exhibition, which aims to raise awareness of the plight of the some twelve million stateless people internationally, is currently open in Dublin.
The Rohingya people of Burma, the Nubians of Kenya and the stateless of Ukraine are just some of the groups featured in ‘Nowhere People’, a six-year endeavour by US photographer Greg Constantine, which has been sponsored by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. Of the event, UNHCR has stated that “‘Nowhere People’ serves as a reminder of why it is so urgent to resolve this global problem”.
‘Nowhere People’ is showing at the atrium in the Department of Justice, 51 St Stephen’s Green, Dublin from Monday to Friday from 9am-6.30pm, until July 19th; admission is free. See Unhcr.ie for more details.
