‘Refugee Hotel’ on The Atlantic

This week, The Atlantic featured an interview with Gabriele Stabile and Juliet Linderman, photographer and editor of Refugee Hotel. The tenth book in the Voice of Witness series, Refugee Hotel is a groundbreaking collection of photography and interviews that documents the arrival of refugees in the United States. Evocative images are coupled with moving testimonies from people describing their first days in the U.S., the lives they’ve left behind, and the new communities they’ve since created.

In the piece, Gabriele discusses the genesis of the book, as well as the relationship he developed with those photographed.
