The portraits and personal stories displayed on this page were part of the exhibition “Flight for Life” at Bornholm’s Museum (DK). The exhibition was made in collaboration with the National Museum of Denmark and could be visited at Bornholm’s Museum from February 2nd until July 31, 2018.
At the exhibition, visitors walked in the footsteps of refugees - from their first decision to flee their country of origin, to the dangerous journies across the Mediterranean Sea, until their arrival in e.g. Denmark.
As part of the exhibition, photographer and founder of Refugee.Today, Martin Thaulow, exhibits a number of his portraits of refugees living on the island of Bornholm. Through his portraits, he seeks to show a different perspective to the mass term ‘refugee’ and portray each human as an individual person with a name, a face and a story.
