We have seen pictures of Syrian corpses lying on the streets and Syrian children in frigid cold refugee camps. But this picture says a lot about the dire situation in Syria. I wonder whether the most powerful nations on earth like USA, Russia, China, England and France can’t help end this war or they won’t. I am clueless of how and when this war is going to end.
Female fighter in Syria. ‘Her name is Fadwa. She’s 20 years old, a widow with three children. Every time I asked the women of the Free Syrian Army why they decided to fight, the answer was: “My husband died on the front lines, I will die on the front lines, may God help us.” This was taken in a secret location in Aleppo. I tried to make her feel at ease and make sure she didn’t see me as a threat. The pose was her choice. I had to take the picture fast. Black and white is a safe bet when you are not in control of the light. I was focusing on their eyes and their clothes. Is it a cliche to say I can’t stop looking at the baby?’
