Stories of Freedom

The individuals featured in our Refugee Week 2023 photography shared with us what freedom means to each of them. We invite you to read their stories, discover how freedom can mean so many different things to different people, and examine your own version of freedom.

All photography is by Muzafar Ali, a Hazara refugee from Afghanistan. He features in the documentary, "Watandar, My Countryman", which chronicles his search for an Afghan-Australian identity in both countries.

All photoshoots were coordinated with the support of the Australian Migrant Resource Centre, which convenes SA Refugee Week annually.
