Through Our Eyes: A Photography Project Made by Refugee Children
Download Full Text
Through Our Eyes is an exhibition made up of photographs taken by refugee children who are forced to live in the hotspot of Samos, Greece. It shows us the daily life of refugee people from the inside of the camp. We can see their daily struggles, not like the pictures made by photographers or journalists, but from a different point of view. We can see their daily life through their own eyes. The photos were taken by Mazí students; Mazí is a youth center run by the Still I Rise NGO in Samos.

Austin Stiegemeier, Assistant Professor of Art & Art History, arranged to bring this exhibit to the Gettysburg College campus in the spring of 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic made this impossible. However, partnering with Musselman Library and project creator Nicoletta Novara, this digital exhibit was created.
