The portraits and personal stories displayed on this page are part of the exhibition “Flight for Life” at Bornholm’s Museum (DK). The exhibition is made in collaboration with the National Museum of Denmark and can be visited at Bornholm’s Museum from February 2nd until July 31st 2018.
At the exhibition visitors walk in the footsteps of refugees - from their first decision to flee their country of origin, to the dangerous journey 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. Read the unique stories below.
