With FotoWeek kicking off this weekend with 150+ (mostly free and open to public) events and exhibitions (do you have your tickets to our opening party on Friday yet? It the one fundraiser the festival is doing) we decided to replace Videos of the Day with Photographs of The Day in an effort to highlight some of the amazing work on show at this year’s 10th annual citywide festival.

Today: a photograph by Lynsey Addario, on show as part of  TIME Magazine & Pulitzer Center’s Finding Home exhibition at FotoGeorgetown

About the photo: Finding Home documents three families at the heart of Europe’s refugee crisis. It’s the story of women and children with no place to call home; it’s about families that, even if they do escape the limbo of refugee camps, may be forced to live in the shadows of Europe for years if not decades; and it’s about a generation of stateless children, born and raised on the run. Since September 2016, the TIME team has spent months documenting the overcrowded refugee camps in Thessaloniki, Greece, and is following the first year in the lives of several refugee babies and their mothers as they seek a new—and more permanent—home in Europe.
