Around the East Bay: Photography: "A New Life, A New Home"

Friday August 03, 2007



An exhibit at the Oakland Art Gallery features photos by 16 children recently resettled in Oakland as refugees from places like Liberia, Turkey, Somalia and the Congo. These refugee youth were forcibly displaced as the result of war, conflict or persecution and now live in Oakland with their families. In April, they were given donated disposable cameras and asked to capture what they see. Some of these youth had been here only several months. The gallery is at  

199 Kahn's Alley. The show closes Aug.8 with a reception 5:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m.
