I Am Still Here
Beirut, Lebanon 2016
During my time living in Beirut, Lebanon, I dedicated several years working at different refugee camps, forging profound connections with the children who viewed me as both a mentor and friend. This piece serves as a tribute to my students who unknowingly transformed my life in immeasurable ways.
The subjects of these photographs are predominantly displaced children originating from Palestine and Syria. Through these images, I sought to capture the essence of their displacement, illustrating how they exist in a state of precariousness where they could vanish from one moment to the next. The photographs juxtapose their presence in a specific location with the same setting devoid of their presence. They symbolize the uncertainty of life and the unknown nature of their future.
