I would like to thank all of the refugees who are pictured in this photo series, and the millions who are not. I hope this work will do something to alleviate your suffering or prevent these situations from happening to others in the future. My thanks to the IRC for their work to help mitigate the suffering of refugees and for granting me access and logistical support to do my work in their camps.
