Special Exhibition Through Their Eyes: Moments Photographed by Syrian Children

This Family Day, inspired by global traditions around tea, reminds us that there are so many things that connect us to our fellow humans around the world. On view this weekend only, “Through Their Eyes: Moments Photographed by Syrian Children” is a project that features photos taken in more than 200 informal settlements throughout Lebanon. In an effort inspired to both empower and overcome the trauma of war, children took photos using disposable cameras made available by UNICEF and the organization ZAKIRA (“memory” in Arabic).
