The exhibition ‘Syria’, by Kontinent photographer, Niclas Hammarström, reflects the impact of the conflict in Syria between 2012 and 2013. During several visits to Syria, Hammarström documented the suffering of civilians and the country’s decline. Without endeavouring to veil the harsh reality, Hammarström’s photographs capture the truths of a civil war, which has led to the largest displacement of people in our times.
This photographic essay earned Hammarström multiple awards both in Sweden and internationally, such as World Press Photo, Picture of the Year International and UNICEF Photo of the Year Award.
