The Photography of Tanya Bindra and Ali Mustafa

The Ali Mustafa Memorial Collective is pleased to announce an exhibition featuring the work of photojournalist Tanya Bindra, the first recipient of the annual Ali Mustafa Memorial Award for People’s Journalism.

The award was estalished in 2014 to honour Ali Mustafa, a Toronto-based photojournalist who was killed by a Syrian regime barrel bomb in 2014.

Since accepting the award in March 2016, Tanya has been documenting the lives of refugees and asylum seekers in Germany, Italy and Greece. 'Towards the Unknown' examines the processes of identity formation and belonging among refugees and asylum-seekers, and captures the ambiguities and contradictions of their varied experiences.

We will also announce the winner of the 2017 Ali Mustafa Memorial Award for People's Journalism at this opening.

The exhibition will continue to run on Saturday April 1st and Sunday April 2nd, from 12pm to 5pm.
