The refugee crises has grown to become a global issue and a recurrent phenomena of our modern world. Every single day, thousands of people are forced to leave their home and belongings behind. The tragic events which occured in Cambodia, Iraq, Somalia, Soudan, Venezuela, Honduras, Mexico, Afghanistan, Soudan, Myanmar or Syria have sent millions on the roads to save their lives.
We should not forget the outburst of violence, the unbearable situations which triggered the migration of each and every one of these individuals. All these people share a fate : the fate of the exodus. Considered in a row, all these poignant stories and pictures create a painful impression of déjà-vu. It seems, indeed, that History does repeat itself when it comes to its worst...

Our photographic project has an educational aim and humanistic ambitions. Not only is it supposed to raise awareness amongst the younger generations, as they will be the leaders of tomorrow; but it also appeals to every citizen, in the sense that we all need to participate in the current debates. Our actions must be led with empathy and dignity. It is our shared duty to respond to these dramatic situations, to bring justice to those who have been wronged and deprived of their human rights. Therefore, we need to show what we saw.
The exhibition Exodus Déjà-Vu showcases the work oftwelve famous photojournalists and awarded photographers which have closely followed and documented the conflicts and the perilous journey of refugees throughout time and space, sharing a glimpse of the daily struggles experienced by people deprived of their human rights.
Two generations of international reporters are reunited on the basis of their joint efforts to alert on the inhuman situations they witnessed all over the world : Coşkun Aral (TUR), Suthep Kritsanavarin (THA), Issa Touma (SY), Roland Neveu (FR), Sergey Ponomarev (RU), Rahman Roslan (MY), Greg Constantine (CA), Jean Chung (KOR) Yalda Moaiery (IR) Guillermo Arias (MEX), Fabiola Ferrero (VEN), and Atilgan Ozdil (TUR). Each photographer brings his own masterpieces and testimony of the events. Together, we consider it our mission to unveil and put forward in Exodus - Déjà Vu the reality of millions.
