Nineteen-year-old Aline Sibomana was a toddler when her family fled their Burundi home for a refugee camp in Tanzania, but says, I remember pretty much everything. You grow up fast there. Sibomana is one of the castaways featured in the "Refugee Status at School: Photographs by Eliza Gregory" exhibit, developed in cooperation with Community Outreach and Advocacy for Refugees. The color portraits and accompanying audio recordings follow individual young people into Arizonas schools as they work toward a future thats brighter than their pasts. The exhibit is a follow-up to Gregorys FUSE: Portraits of Refugee Households in Metropolitan Phoenix, an excellent exhibit by the San Francisco-born, Phoenix-based activist/photographer that hung last year at the ASU Museum of Anthropology.
