A Photographic Exhibition by Mariusz Smiejek – John Hewitt International Summer School

Mariusz Smiejek is an award-winning photojournalist from Poland where he was professionally trained by the National Geographic. His work at the Institute for Conflict Research in Belfast is dedicated to exposing issues related to conflict transformation in its many guises including working with former combatants, families affected by conflict and those seeking a haven in Northern Ireland from conflict elsewhere.

Daily Lives documents the lived experiences of asylum seekers in Italy and Ireland North and South, and the images capture a range of emotions and coping strategies including resilience and fortitude, in the face of abject destitution.
