The Children of Syria featured in FT Magazine.

16 March, 2017

Nick’s first collaboration with artist Alma Haser is now out as part of Save the Children’s Invisible Wounds project, marking the 6th year of the Syrian conflict. 

The story was published by the FT Magazine (as shown here), featured with an interview in the Creative Review and also picked up by Time’s LightBox publication. 

Nick travelled to the Turkish side of the border with Syria to meet and photograph Mohammed, Ahmed, Abbas, Hassan and Razan, amongst other children living at an orphanage. The portraits were then manipulated by Alma using her well-known origami and paper techniques. Each piece comes together in collages and animations that respond to each child’s story of ‘Toxic Stress’, caused by the constant fear and trauma from their very adverse experiences. 

The full series will be up on the web shortly!
