Ten photographers with roots in five different countries — Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Moldova, and Yemen — turn their lenses towards the Netherlands. This group of talented photographers with refugee backgrounds worked under guidance to create a series of documentary photos that present their vision of present-day Netherlands. They received guest lectures from top photographers, including the current Photographer Laureate Marwan Magroun, former Photographer Laureate Ilvy Njiokiktjien, and Silver Camera winner Mona van den Berg. The images in this exhibition are at times intimate and tender, at times revealing and confronting, but always from a surprising perspective, that of the newcomer. From April 17 until May 10 this photo’s can be seen in the Atrium of the City Hall in The Hague. 

This photo exhibition is produced by the Municipality of The Hague and is a project by RFG Magazine. RFG Magazine is an organization that supports fledgling media professionals in their integration into the Dutch job market.
