The World Refugee Forum at the Museum of Photographic Arts on June 19, featured photographs and talks by photographers Bear Guerra and Don Bartletti.

Guerra, known as a humanitarian photographer, shared his photographs of Somali Bantu refugees who ended up in Boston (left). His photos depict the refugees in a vulnerable and compassionate light. He told stories of people who have experienced difficulties most Americans couldn’t imagine. They had to learn English and get accustomed to things as simple as running water and electricity.
