What We Carried with Jim LommassonPhotographer Jim Lommasson will discuss “What We Carried: Fragments and Memories from Iraq and Syria,” a collaborative storytelling project with Iraqi and Syrian refugees who have fled to their homelands and have come to America. Lommasson invites Iraqi and Syrian refugees to share a personal item significant to their lives, such as a family snapshot, an heirloom dish or childhood toy.
