Mediterranean Migration
Project info

During the summer of 2016, I have photographed the desperate attempts by migrants from all over Africa and the Middle East to cross the Mediterranean. Embedded on board MOAS’ (Migrant Offshore Aid Station) rescue vessel Topaz Responder, I have seen thousands of migrants, of all ages and nationalities, trying to cross the Mediterranean in un-seaworthy vessels from Libya. Among those thousands of migrants were many children, some parentless. These images are but a glimpse of the unfolding and unabated tragedy of those desperately risking their lives and their families' in the hope of a better life, free of persecution or poverty, in Europe.
