More than twety years ago, Jeffrey Wolin [b. 1951, New York, NY] decided to combine his love of words with his passion for making photographs, producing narrative images that offer the viewer a glimpse into the lives depicted. Whether pointing the camera at himself, his family or strangers, Wolin writes stories directly on his photographs, weaving narratives in and around faces, offering the viewer a more complete understanding of the person shown.
The recent numbers of refugees fleeing their homelands has created an enormous humanitarian crisis that has become politicized, as countries seek to close borders denying access to people forced to flee their homelands due to violence. Caught in the middle of this awful reality are the parents who make the unimaginable choice to send their children away, in the hopes of a better life. Often they are sent to orphanages, where there is a chance for an education, food and shelter. Other times, they are sent alone to a foreign land, in the hopes that a country will shelter them. I MATTER is CASE Art Funds response to this crisis.
