Haunting Photos Reveal What Life Is Like For Syria’s Refugees | BuzzFeed

Now in its fourth year, the Syrian war is as bloody as ever, with more than 170,000 people killed in the conflict since 2011, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Journalist and photographer Ben Taub has spent recent weeks in Kilis, a Turkish city near the Syrian border, documenting the lives of people displaced by the ongoing horror of war.

“Syria’s war can be heard every day in distant booms and ambulance sirens,” Taub told BuzzFeed. “For most Syrians, escaping the line of fire does not qualify as having left the war behind, as the crisis continues to haunt those from whom it took homes, friends, family members, pets, comfort, and sometimes limbs.”

Taub said he wants his work to “give a sense of this loss, but also a glimmer of hope through the strength and resilience Syria’s civilians demonstrate in spite of what war has taken from them.”
