    Year in Focus

    Demonstrators throw fire bombs to riot police during violent protests in central Athens February 12, 2012.

    Thousands of demonstrators clashed with police as the Greek parliament prepared to vote on a new and deeply unpopular EU/IMF austerity deal, to secure a 130 billion euro bailout, aimed at saving Greece from bankruptcy and what Prime Minister Lucas Papademos warned would be ‘uncontrollable economic chaos’.

    Just after crossing the border between Greece and Turkey, an Afghan man prays by the railway while waiting for the train to take him to Athens.

    Photographer Zalmai has documented Afghan refugees worldwide, most recently in Greece, where they are often the victims of xenophobic discrimination and abuse. 

    This week, he is in New York presenting his work at several events organized by Magnum Foundation.

    Photograph from ‘Walking in Quicksand: Afghans in Greece’ by Zalmai.

    Zalmai received initial support for Walking in Quicksand from the Magnum Foundation’s Emergency Fund in 2011. As the first entry point into Europe from the Middle East, Greece receives among the largest number of Afghani migrants and asylum seekers in all of Europe. Zalmai traveled to Greece to expose the deteriorating condition of Afghan migrants trapped in Greece’s dysfunctional asylum system. 

    The project will be exhibited at The Duke University Center for International Studies (DUCIS) from August 27th to October 12th as part of the Magnum Foundation and DUCIS residency program.
