Gregory Beals: They Arrived Last Night

February 6, 2018 – June 2, 2018

Artist, journalist, and humanitarian Gregory Beals has focused on documenting the global refugee crisis over the course of the last eight years. They Arrived Last Night is a collection of photographs that sheds light on the refugee experience, capturing both the relief of escaping an untenable situation and the fear of an uncertain future. Beals’ images poignantly convey the multitude of experiences and emotions that come from living in a liminal state. Some portraits capture mourning and fear, while others illustrate unexpected stories of hope, resilience, and joy. Beals has worked with the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, and was a correspondent for Newsweek Magazine.
