UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) has teamed up with the prestigious Magnum Photos to celebrate the lives of refugees and their impact on Europe over the past six decades.
The light show “60 Years, 60 Lives,” is appearing in cities across Europe as the annual World Refugee Day approaches. It also pays tribute to the humanitarian achievements in Europe over the past 60 years.
The photos in the light show include six images of former refugees across Europe taken by Magnum photographers Antoine D’Agata and Moises Saman – one per decade. The remaining 54 images were provided by refugees who found sanctuary in Europe and each tells a story, condensed into one detail: the violin brought from home, their first document as a refugee, a family snap.
Venues for the light show include the façade of Malta’s Fort St. Angelo, the Museumsquartier in Vienna and the Metro system in Rome as well as bars and restaurants in Brussels.
