The pictures in this exhibition are taken in Syria between the years of 2013–2019. It captures the many faces of war showing us the joy of children playing, soldiers and the despair of grieving families.

The photographer Kovan Direj was born in Syria. When war broke out, he decided to use his camera to show the world what was happening. Due to the photographies being widely spread, he received death threats from the IS and was forced to flee the country. He now studies journalism at Södertörn University.

The exhibition will be on display until 18 December on floor 5 in the library.
