Syria Jordan Iraq: Displacement Resilience Hope – Opening ReceptionAug 5, 2016 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The face of the displaced. What does their world actually look like, and who are the millions facing life as a refugee or an IDP (internally displaced person)? In April, Pittsburgh photographer Maranie Stabb traveled to Syrian refugee camps in Jordan and Iraq in an attempt to answer these questions. The August 5th opening reception for her exhibition, “Displacement | Resilience | Hope,” will include an artist talk, live music, refreshments, and conversation.
Maranie Staab is a documentary photographer based in Pittsburgh, PA. Her work focuses on people and especially those in marginalized parts of society — whether domestically or abroad. She photographs to dispel misconceptions, to underline the common humanity that unites us all, and to further understanding of a world outside of our own. Her work has taken her throughout Eastern and Western Europe, Africa and to the Middle East.
