Photographer Matej Lancic went to a Syrian refugee camp Faida, near Zahle in Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, while working on a project about Syrian refugees.
He heard the children singing a song written by their teacher, and decided to do a photo essay inspired by that song.
It’s called Syria Paradise.
We all coming back to rebuild you,
Syria, Syria, Syria,
I’ll not give up learning,
I’ll be better than all,
In my morality,
It’s my right to learn,
I don’t want to live in pain,
No, no, no.
Many children in this camp are traumatized, but that this was not meant to be the focus of his photo essay.
