Displaced from the very concept of a homeland by a world torn apart by conflict, Iraqi refugee Ali Almedy recreates locations he has never seen in the form of highly detailed dioramas.

In Veena Rao’s short portrait, there is something elusive, intriguing – and also comforting – about the resilient psyche of the artist despite the permanent scars wrought by war.
