We gasp for more than just air ( book) Free Postcards included!
Really happy to present the work of young photographers from Syria in this photo collection. Printed and bound in heavy set 120 gsm bond paper, it’s a wild celebration of that impulsive and joyous instinct, the mischievous fresh alchemy, that we call childhood.
Many of the kids are refugees living on the Turkish Syrian border, their images capturing a beautifully playful energy that’s only amplified by the feeling of survival and ambiguous sense of loss that so many people in their situation must carry with them.
But what we see in these photos is more than a survival story. Supported by ‘Darkroom’, a small mobile photography workshop for vulnerable and underprivileged children displaced by war, these photographers are finding magic and beauty in their surroundings, they’re going beyond mere survival and reclaiming their humanity.
The book also includes 10 large postcards featuring images from the book.
50% of all profits go to the Darkroom initiative. Visit their website here:
