What is a home? A home can be a place, but it can also be a feeling. A new photography exhibition by National Geographic and the Nobel Peace Center showcases images taken by young refugees and young people from Norway and Greece that portray their own notions of home.
Over the course of six months in 2017, young refugees and youth living in Norway and Greece participated in four National Geographic Photo Camps in the Norwegian cities of Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim, and in Athens, Greece. National Geographic Photo Camp is a program that teaches young people from underserved communities, including at-risk and refugee teens, how to use photography to tell their own stories and explore the world around them. Mentored by renowned National Geographic photographers, these young people explored each other’s cultures and the meaning of home, with the goal of creating increased understanding and developing deep connections with others through photography as a universal language.
