There’s a photo exhibit returning to New York City that will take you places you’ve never been before and introduce you to people living in other parts of the world.

The Catholic Near East Welfare Association or CNEWA is back with a photo exhibit at the Sheen Center For Thought and Culture in Manhattan.

The papal agency that does relief work in 15 different countries is showing the “And Who Is My Neighbor – The Faces Of CNEWA” exhibit.

“It speaks to the truth of the dignity of every human person, it obviously speaks to the goodness, the good works CNEWA is doing in these areas,” David Dicerto, Director of Faith Programming at the Sheen Center said. “But that truth and that goodness is ultimately beautiful and that beauty comes through magnificently in these photos so I think it’s the perfect marriage of CNEWA’s mission and our mission here as a Catholic arts center.”

The exhibit features 11 photos from the agency’s magazine spanning three decades. 

The photos of people in places where war or conflict has created a humanitarian crisis were all taken by women photojournalists. 

The exhibit is free and open to the public and will be at the Sheen Center For Thought and Culture until June 15th everyday from 9AM – 6 PM.If you can’t make it in person, there’s a virtual tour of the gallery at CNEWA.Org
