Images of suffering, loss, and hope
A image is worth a thousand words, which is why we document our work and the lives of the displaced people who have come to Central Europe in photos. Some of our most dramatic shots are showcased here and on our Flickr Page.
UNHCR’s global photo library in Geneva has an additional 250,000 photos, which depict nearly every major displacement over the last 60 years. The images provide a comprehensive and compelling portrait of the lives of refugees, asylum-seekers, the internally displaced, and stateless people in all corners of the globe. The images also reveal the work of generations of agency staff members who struggled to help them.
UNHCR provides photos free of charge to the media. Browse a selection of our best images here.
