This series of 22 captivating photographs by acclaimed Swedish photographer, Magnus Wennman, documents the tragic consequences of the refugee crisis by capturing what the simple act of bedtime brings for the youngest and most vulnerable refugees. Each photograph comes with captions by journalist Carina Bergfeldt of how these children and their families struggle through the Middle East and Europe while making the harrowing journey out of Syria.

Also opening on October 21st are two accompanying exhibits that build on the refugee theme: Portraits of Migration: Sweden Beyond the Headlines and ‘better shelter’.
