Refugee Life Through the Eyes of Kids

Magnus Wennman is an acclaimed photographer, twice winning the World Press Photos award. Since 2011, when Syrians began leaving their country en masse, Wennman has recorded their lives as they make their way from Syria to Turkey and other countries in Europe where they hope to settle.

Wennman's work has received a lot of attention lately, as the Syrian refugee crisis expands across the globe. While governments, local and national, decide whether to accept refugees within their jurisdictions, the 4 million people fleeing a dangerous and life-threatening regime figure out a way to survive on little money and often no shelter.

Children make up hundreds of thousands of the displaced people. Wennman's project, Where the Children Sleep, is a sober reminder of the desperation among Syrian families.
