Hate Crimes: An Other Europe

An Other Europe is a collection of photo stories that expose the increasing number of hate crimes.

This summer, I was invistigating the increasing number of hate crimes among the refugee communities in Greece. This experience has touched me deeply and has led me to began a long term project based on a series of photo documentaries that is capturing the lives of those that have sought refuge in Europe and have become victims of hate crimes.

I am very pleased that my initiative is supported by Per i Diritti Umani, an Italian organization working for human rights advocacy,  http://www.peridirittiumani.com/  which will be publishing and hosting a regular newsletter about this ongoing photo project on their pages.
