CBS Professor Susana Borras is the photographer and her photos aim to open our eyes to the positive side of Europeans living in Denmark. The exhibition contains 27 portraits, each one corresponding to a person born in another EU country. 

Their fascinating life stories tell us about courage and adaptation; and above all, about their willingness to be an active part of Denmark. To make a positive contribution.
