Land of the displaced
Project info

From september 2013 till april 2014 I traveled throughout Lebanon with my camera exploring the living conditions of displaced people.
Out of the five countries bordering Syria, Lebanon has hosted most of the Syrian refugees. Fearing a long lasting settlement of the Syrian population as it happened previously with the Palestinian camps, which are now semi autonomous built settlements, the authorities have not allowed the creation of official refugee camps handled by UN agencies or NGO’s. Further more since Lebanon is not signatory of the 1951 UN Convention or its 1967 protocol, the country does not have legislation or administrative practices in place to address the needs of refugees.
