Gage Gallery – Nowhere People – The Children: Photographs by Greg Constantine
The Roosevelt University Gage Gallery fall show is Nowhere People – The Children: Photographs by Greg Constantine. The project reveals the harsh realities of the global community of stateless people, including children. The denial of citizenship is the root cause of any number of critical issues, including forced migration, human trafficking and armed conflict. These photographs give a small voice to people who for generations have had none, and illustrate the toll denial of citizenship has claimed on people and ethnic groups excluded from society by forces beyond their control. The show is sponsored by the journalism program of the Department of Communication at Roosevelt University, with generous financial support from Susan B. Rubnitz and Elyse Koren-Camarra. The show runs through December 2 at Roosevelt’s Gage Gallery, 18 S. Michigan Ave. For more information, visit www.roosevelt.edu/gagegallery .
