Event Details

Seeking refuge for my children.

Since early August 2015 and for 150 days on the ground, the camera of thephotojournalist Javier Bauluz travels with mothers, fathers and childrenseeking for a safe place to live during their long trip towards the heart ofEurope.

The route starts from the arrival at the islands of Lesbos and Kos, in Greece,where they land after a short and dangerous cruise across the Aegean from thecoast of Turkey. Once in continental Europe the journey of syrian, afghan andiraqi families continues through Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, Hungary, AustriaGermany, Holland and France.

A long and difficult way by foot following the train tracks, through trails,motorways, on bus or on board obsolete and old Balkan railways.

The fact that the protagonists are parents and children favors empathy andviewer identification with this people who, like any of us, run away from war tosave their lives and their children’s.

Bauluz focuses on emotions, crucial moments and personal relationships thatshow us universality that makes us humans and equals.
