Imiria means “hope” in Bambara, the Mali’s language. This project aim to overthrow the ethnic prejudgement of refugees. These photos were taken during the time I had spent with some refugees from Mali hosted by ONG. “Imiria” because it had lead them to risk their lives to come to Europe. This had also encouraged them to seek out their dreams. In the last year several walls have been erected to control the flow of immigration. Even though the European community was found by the free movement of people. Furthermore walls do exist, invisible but erected because if one doesn’t understand another culture their enable to except. In addition refugees are not different from us or others. Knowing them, understanding them, welcoming them, could help us to tear down those invisible walls.
