Washington, DC Exhibit of Austin's Syrian Photographs

Austin Tice: Children of Syria

ICC Galleria, April 23-30, 2018

An introduction to the exhibition with the Tice family and SFS Dean Joel Hellman will be held on Monday, April 23rd at 1:00pm in the ICC Galleria.

In 2012, Austin Tice (SFS '02) –– a Georgetown alumnus, freelance journalist, and veteran captain in the U.S. Marine Corps from Houston, Texas –– traveled to Syria to report on the unfolding crisis for McClatchy News, CBS, The Washington Post, and other publications. He traveled extensively across the country to cover various aspects of the Syrian revolution for these media outlets, earning a George Polk Award for War Reporting and McClatchy President’s Award for Journalism Excellence. Tice was scheduled to begin his final year at the Georgetown University Law Center that autumn, but he was taken captive by unknown persons near Damascus in August 2012. He remains missing more than five and a half years later.

An exhibition of Austin's photographs from Syria will be on display in the ICC Galleria from April 23rd to 30th.
Thank you to the Tice family, the Georgetown University Office of Federal Relations, and the Georgetown University Journalism Program for support in setting up this exhibition.
