The American photographer Fazal Sheikh (1965) is no stranger to the Netherlands. In his previous exhibitions held at the Nederlands Fotomuseum (1997, 2001) and during the photograhy festival Noorderlicht (1997), he showed his impressive portraits of homeless people and refugees in African and Asia. By now Fazal Sheikh has developed his body of work substantially. In monumental and tranquil black/white portraits, Sheikh gives names and faces to the people in refugee camps in Kenya, Tanzania and Pakistan. He also records their stories in extensive statements. Huis Marseille brings these and other series together in a retrospective, which has been realized in close collaboration with the artist, curator Carlos Gollonet and Fondación MAPFRE in Madrid.
