EXILE features the work of 24 Magnum photographers, who photographed people all over the world who have lost their home and their homeland. People who, for political or economic reasons, were obliged to leave their country, were forced into exile by war or natural disasters, and who possess only what they can carry.

The exhibition eschews any form of historical, chronological or geographical order, aiming to visualize the sheer number of international conflicts which have occurred since the Second World War, and the resultant masses of exiles and refugees.

Presented by the 11th edition of the Fotografia Europea festival in Reggio Emilia (Italy) from May 6th to July 10th. For more information, please visit Fotografia Europea website.
