Where the Children Sleep
A photo exhibit about refugee children in Europe and Middle East by Magnus Wennman
A girl afraid to close her eyes. A boy without a bed.
A child who dreams of when bedtime didn’t bring terror.
More than two million children have been forced from their homes by the war in Syria. Refugee children in neighbouring countries or making journeys through Europe show us where they sleep while they await an uncertain future.
Swedish photographer Magnus Wennman, winner of two World Press Photo Awards, has partnered with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency to raise awareness about refugee children. UNHCR, in close collaboration with Fotografiska - The Swedish Museum of Photography, has brought his award-winning exhibit to the United States for the first time.
