Syrian Elsewhere

Syrian Elsewhere

Is an exhibition which is looking at the sense of identity of Syrian refugees in Europe (Germany, Netherlands, France and England). Photo book, 21 photographic portraits and 2 video interviews describe people's experiences in their new surroundings and ask them about their loyalties to their homeland; Syria.

The portraits document different stages of their experience in a new society and ask questions like:
Do the Syrian men and women still feel pride in being Syrians?
How do they explain their loyality to their country?
How do parents explain the Syrian identity to their children?
