OPTION OF LAST RESORT: IRAQI REFUGEES IN THE UNITED STATES
What: Documentary images by photographer Gabriela Bulisova, from her series of Iraqi Refugees in America. Fearful for their own safety and the safety of family members in Iraq because they are seen as “collaborators” for helping the U.S. and are being targeted for assassination – these most vulnerable refugees have been resettled by the United States government as an “option of last resort”. As part of FotoWeek DC 2010.
