art of resistance, Syria

The haunted places of Syria.

Jerome Sessini is a French photographer who spent years working on big stories all over the globe – from Iraq to Mexico, to Syria.

About his work, he says:

I don’t like rigid categories. Sometime there is art in journalism and journalism in art. Conscience, heart, beauty, balance and loss of balance are essentials for me. ”

From this direct confrontation with violence, he has recognized a state of things which is at the heart of his work, “Ordinary fellows are always those losing, either it being in Iraq, Mexico or France”.
These are his photos from Aleppo, Syria (2013).
