The #FleeingTheFolio series is a literal approach to "displacement", where Persian Miniatures are cut out from manuscript folios and inserted into photographs of Canadian sites where their presence is reimagined. These characters consequently fall foreign to their new context: an experience lived daily by "displaced" persons.
