Talking at New York University, La Pietra Florence.

Award winning photographer Alessandro Penso will discuss his project to document the various phases of the European welcome of refugees from 2009 to the present through the hope and suffering of migrants. From rescues at sea to climbing walls, hiking across mountains and running to jump onto moving trucks, every moment is full of desperation. Even in the ‘flat immobility’ of welcome centers and camps there is movement: the anxious beating hearts of those waiting to find out what has been decided for them. Penso’s work on Europe’s refugee crisis was named Time magazine’s Photo Story of the Year in 2015.
