In these solemn portraits of asylum seekers, the use of a serene background

and natural light creates a certain aesthetic atmosphere.

In addition to emphasize the integrity of the individual and their expression, personality, pride,

vulnerability and hope are captured in contrast to their uncertain reality.

The emotional burden that often was evoked by the models,

rapidly turned into the unique beauty of these incredibly strong individuals.

 

The awareness that human beings around the globe need to flee from violence,oppression,

censorship and dictatorships put our welfare issues into perspective.

Special thanks goes to Fedasil Kapellen and all the participating asylum seekers.
