Recreating Home: Photographs of the Refugee Experience
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Nearly 15,000 refugees have resettled in Syracuse over the course of the past 15 years. The majority of these families and many of those who continue to arrive ultimately call the Northside neighborhood home.

Most families have fled extreme poverty, environmental disasters, political turmoil, conflict, or worse and have since begun life anew, many arriving in Syracuse without a penny or a word of English.

These communities—spanning individuals from throughout Africa, the Middle East, Ukraine, Cuba, and parts of Asia—live in what most of us would consider poverty, but their appreciation for a new life and work ethic is profound.

Photographer Maranie R. Staab has explored these communities and feels privileged to have been allowed into the lives of families as they work to recreate "home" thousands of miles away from the ones they once knew.
