You cannot open TV or any media for that matter without stumbling to the the news and the grim images of the refugees from Syria. Refugees, how is EU dealing with this… this constant information overflow leaves me personally totally puzzled. Anxiety and compassion are the first words which come to mind, but I am also quietly embarrased because I really don’t know what is going on and even more so, why is this happening right now.
Occasionnally something really hits you. Like the other day the image of the little drowned kid on the beach… A friend and a colleague of mine Hanna Weselius wrote a very good piece on the iconic nature of this image (In Finnish).
And I am photographer: I love the still images.
I never understood that the original reason (or at least one – a major one – of them) for the conflict was the changing climate. And I am very impressed by the storytelling thru (gif-animated) comic-stripe style of narration. What a powerful tool.
I’d say worth taking a look.
