Mark Henley exhibiting at the Flux Laboratory in Zurich, Switzerland

Mark Henley photographed a series of portraits of refugees seeking asylum in Switzerland in 2016. The images were pasted onto the ground in a public square in Geneva but were defaced by unknown vandals one night. The original series was produced as part of an anti-racism week, in cooperation with the New York-based Insideout Project, who produced the one meter prints which were put on display by the refugees themselves, many of whom were living – and were photographed – in underground bunkers.

Now the pictures of the defaced portraits will be exhibited in Switzerland at:

Flux Laboratory
Utoquai 31
8008 Zurich

from 22 March until 21 April 2017.
