DESCRIPTION

Refuge(e) is a photography based multimedia body of work that evolved from photographer Barbara Grover's 7 week visit to the Darfuri refugee camp, Iridimi,  in 2007. Proceeds from the sale of all photographs benefit the Solar Cooker project which protects women and girls from rape and capture because they no longer need to leave the camp to search for firewood. The images are an homage to the courage and dignity of a people whose lives have been disrupted by war.

Barbara Grover's multi-media, photography based exhibit is an ode to the hope and courage of Darfur refugees -- an unexpected look at what people who lived the unthinkable are doing to rebuild their lives.
