Amanda Rivkin on Asylum seekers escaping war, now on @opensocietyfoundations Instagram

This week on the @opensocietyfoundations Instagram: Photographer Amanda Rivkin follows the route refugees from Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq are taking starting in Turkey and continuing through the Western Balkans, and on finally to integration in Germany.  She is doing an amazing job. By starting in Turkey at the border with Syria in 2012, she shows how the waves of asylum seekers escaping Syria didn't begin a month ago, but rather has been building for several years. I am so impressed with her storytelling and successful use of a week-long take over to beautifully give a history lesson that cuts through the noise and the nullifies the inacurate portrayal of this as a 'crisis.'
