201701 exhibition 

Some Day, Going Back Home -Syrian Refugee Children-
Photo Exhibition by Natsuki Yasuda
Main Bar (Jan. 07 - Feb. 3, 2017)

Photojournalist Natsuki Yasuda is currently documenting the tragic plight of the refugees of the Syrian civil war. Since it began in 2011, the worsening conflict in Syria has forced 9.5 million people―around half the country's population―to leave their homes. Over three million of these displaced people have been forced to leave Syria, including over 600,000 who have sought refuge in Jordan. We can see photographs as windows that open onto the lives of the people there through this exhibition.

While at high school, Natsuki Yasuda traveled to Cambodia on a program run by Japanese educational NGO Children Without Borders, where she documented projects that provided children and young people with working and life skills. Now a professional photojournalist, she reports on wars and natural disasters in Southeast Asia, the Near East, Africa, and Japan. Since the Tohoku earthquake her main base of operations has been the city of Rikuzentakata, from which she has documented developments in the disaster zone. In 2012 Yasuda won the eighth Younosuke Natori Photography Award for her work on Uganda's HIV-AIDS orphans.
