As the conflict in Syria enters it’s fourth year and has escalated into a brutal civil war, it has claimed over 120,000 human lives and internally displaced 6.5 million people. Nearly 2.5 million Syrians have fled to Jordan and neighboring countries since the beginning in 2011--half of them children. 

I am working on a documentary entitled “The Aftermath of War Through the Experiences of Women and Children”. I want to document the human experience and everyday life of those affected by war. This project is not solely about photographing women and children living in miserable conditions, but a photo essay about dreams, hopes, and dignity.

The purpose of my project is humanitarian. My mission is to utilize my images to raise awareness and inspire people to take action and get involved.
