Bowey traveled around the state of Minnesota meeting refugees, listening to their stories, and photographing their portraits. The photographs were taken on location in a setting of the portraits subject’s everyday life, such as their home, school or place of work. Along with the portrait, the artist interviewed each person and their first-person story accompanies their photograph.

Bowey’s work, “When Home Won’t Let You Stay, Stories of Refugees in Minnesota” is on display in the RCTC Art Gallery through July 13.
