Beyond War and Death, See the World Through Syrian Eyes | Global Voices

“After more than thirty years, I feel myself as a mother all over again. My grandchildren remind me of my children that I took care of. I would like to celebrate all mothers for Mother’s Day, and hopefully next year will be more beautiful for us and for all the world.” – Mouna Abdelahad.

“Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis in 2011, what is shown about Syria isn’t always beautiful. It’s a sad reality, but in an effort not to forget the human beings behind the conflict, we decided to show the world other faces, other realities.” These are the first words chosen to describe the idea behind ‘Syrian Eyes of the World‘, an international photography project created by Youssef Shoufan and hosted by ‘La Maison de la Syrie‘.

The photography collective archives “this part of History that we are living in, the history of a mosaic nation that has lived in harmony for thousands of years, but that is now living difficult moments.” They are non-denominational and have no affiliations except “respectful, quality and aesthetic ones.”
