Syrian Refugees' Messages To The World

Together with colleague Benjamin Reece and with the support of international charity organization CARE, photographer Robert Fogarty traveled to Jordan to deliver the messages of Syrian refugees to the world. They did so in these portraits, in which refugees used felt-tip markers to express their hopes. "The refugees seemed so different from me -- their dress, their language, and their customs. But I felt like I knew them. Especially when they laughed and cried. And how they described their homes, even down to how the water tasted or how the sands of Syria felt beneath their [feet]," Fogarty writes on his photoblog.
