Exhibition: Syria – Prisoners of the Conflict
- March, 3–17, Lucerna Arcade
The photographs capture a day-to-day reality of common people in the biggest Syrian city of Aleppo striving to lead their ordinary lives in the immediate vicinity of the horrors of war. Being crushed by constant fighting, cold or food shortage, they are struggling to maintain their dignity, first and foremost.
Powerfully yet sensitively, she illustrates everyday hardships of the Syrians – desperate seeking for bread and firewood, or problems with heaps of refuse no one is able to collect. She also pays attention to children, whose world has been invaded by the war, and to internally displaced persons, who have been trying to escape death while succumbing to the creeping dread of war. Directly in the country, the conflict victims are being aided by People in Need NGO.
