Gregory Beals: They Arrived Last Night, which documents the global refugee crisis through compelling photographic portraits. 

Artist, journalist, and humanitarian Gregory Beals has focused on documenting the global refugee crisis over the course of the last eight years. They Arrived Last Night is a collection of photographs that sheds light on the refugee experience, capturing both the relief of escaping an untenable situation and the fear of an uncertain future. Beals’ images poignantly convey the multitude of experiences and emotions that come from living in a liminal state. Some portraits capture mourning and fear, while others illustrate unexpected stories of hope, resilience, and joy.
