This picture is part of a UNHCR photography project, carried out with the assistance of a professional photographer Brendan Bannon. The project is entitled "Do you see what I see?", and gives refugee children the opportunity to learn how to use a camera and have the opportunity to give the world a vivid, emotional look into their lives.

 

"See refugee life through the voices and visions of children, who are experts on their own lives." B. Bannon
