Insight into the Ukrainian Refugee Crisis

Documentary photographers and humanitarian advocates Theresa Menders, WG’94 and Daniel Farber Huang, WG’94 will discuss the Ukrainian refugee crisis and present their recent photographs taken at the Poland/Ukraine border. The wife and husband photo team have been reporting on the plight of displaced people since the 2015 global refugee crisis began. Menders and Huang have worked in refugee camps across Greece as well as in Turkey, Bangladesh, and Mexico. They are the co-founders of "The Power of Faces", a global portrait project that seeks to humanize the refugee crisis and raise awareness of displaced populations. Their work has been exhibited at Amnesty International as well as numerous universities and museums.
