Opening of a photo exhibition on the plight of refugees entering Europe through Greece.

Photographer Nicola Zolin will open an exhibition of his photographs on the plight of refugees entering Europe through Greece, one year after the EU-Turkey deal.

The images of the exodus of hundreds of thousands of people fleeing war and poverty to reach Europe, have for months made international headlines. But lately the audience has become increasingly numb toward the plight of these human beings in transit, seeking a new future. The migration phenomenon has became hostage to politics as it has been steadily manipulated by rising xenophobic movements throughout Europe.

The exhibition will be on display at ISS until 26 May 2017.
