Summary: Pictures in my Heart explores the lives of a group of Afghan refugees who arrived in Australia by boat in 1999 and 2001. They lived and worked in the regional city of Murray Bridge in South Australia on Temporary Protection Visas while awaiting permanent protection. When an important figure in their community committed suicide, they began to participate in a health program that culminated in the artworks, stories and photographs in this book.
Pictures in my Heart is a deeply personal account of what these men and their families endured, both in Afghanistan and Australia, and how they persevered – Source: Wakefield Press
