Chen Peiper. Refugees
People have fled from their countries across wild seas in inhuman conditions.
The colours of the sky and the sea and in between, human beings. This is the essence of the work “Refugees”. The sea is their last refuge. The use of the magnifying glass and a “net of hope” overwhelms this global problem. Images emerge from countless events of refugees at sea, on their way in search for a safe haven.
