Toronto, Ontario

After many of his relatives were killed in Homs, Hany Al-Moliya, now 21 years-old and legally blind, fled with the remaining members of his family to a refugee camp in Lebanon. There he met eminent photojournalist Brendan Bannon who was part of a UN refugee program for children in refugee camps, giving them voice and an opportunity to tell their stories through their own photography and writing. Able to see through his camera, Hany shares with the world his experiences of refugee life.

Hany and Brendan will be at Ryerson to talk about their experiences, and Hany will share his images.
