Testimonies from the Syrian war
This is the start of a long term project looking at the lives of the people who have fled the ongoing Syrian conflict and recording the testimonies. My first trip took me to Lebanon, the country where the most refugees have settled. Looking for safety from a war that has become a hotbed of sectarian violence, they turn their neighbour, a country that only 8 years ago was being bombarded by Israeli planes, and has a history of religious violence. My project focuses on the stories of the Syrian refugees, while also looking at the backdrop of continuing tensions and conflicts in the Middle East since the formation of the State of Israel.
