Ibrahim Omar; However i’m far away from Esad, i’m still scared to die by his bombs while sleeping.

  Remaining- From  march 2011 till now over 60.000 people died during the Syrian civil war and 700.000 people took refuge in other countries. Some cities are entirely destroyed. The remaining people are trying to survive in more and more bad conditions. This series is not about the explosions, neither about the conflicts, nor dead people, but about the effects of war. It shows the relationship of the remaining people with the remaining places and their environments.  

  

–   Bassam; I’ve lost four family members.
