At a time when #refugees are being demonized by politicians around the world, it helps to see them as individuals rather than categorizing them as "threats" or "victims." Over the past year, I retraced the refugee trail through Europe with an Augmented Reality app, looking for photos that people had posted and geo-tagged to Instagram along the way. Viewing these refugee selfies, people's personalities shine through--some love cracking jokes, others are romantics, others long for their homes. In short, they are just like us. In these volatile times any one of us could suddenly become a refugee. If forced into #exile, how would you want others to see you? You can follow @Reza.HDZ to see more of his personality and photos from the refugee trail. View the "Traces of Exile" feature on the New Yorker website by clicking the link in my bio or typing: http://nyer.cm/UaGiZRl or see the long form video installation at the @ICP Museum in #NYC of the @SECCAcontempArt Museum in #Winston-Salem. #TracesofExile #RefugeeBan #ICPMuseum @tracesofexile @thephotosociety @newyorkerphoto @newyorkermag @pulitzercenter

How does technology designed for #surveillance render the human form? To find out, I photographed in New York City and Washington with thermal-imaging camera, including this subway station in Brooklyn. #PackingHeat
