In the exhibition Studio Aleppo [The Hague] at ‘Spuiplein’, 28 inhabitants from The Hague introduce themselves to you. Some of them are newcomers, while others have lived here for a long time. The portraits, taken by renowned photographer Robin de Puy, challenge you to reflect on your judgment about refugees.
The portraits are a selection of the fifty The Hague residents that were portrayed at the Humanity House by De Puy. The aim of the exhibition is to stimulate a feeling of recognition and inclusion between old and new residents of The Hague.
Studio Aleppo: Picturing (new) European citizens is a project by Paradox, in which pop-up photography studios are set up in various European cities. In each city, newcomers and ‘established’ residents are invited to have their picture taken by a prominent photographer. Studio Aleppo was initiated by Syrian photographer Issa Touma
