Sons of the Sun

2021 - ongoing

Photographed between Turkey and Europe, Sons of the Sun is an ongoing collaborative project that aims to provide young Syrians with a space to frame their narratives and reclaim their stories, life experiences and identities. By adopting an intimate and subjective approach, the project strives to explore the process of coming of age in the context of forced migration and displacement, while also inviting us to reflect on the ways memory informs the construction and maintenance of identities and shapes our understanding of space, and is also shaped by time and place. It draws together the experiences of the youth in Turkey and the one who have left for countries such as Canada and Italy, among others, to promote cross-cultural understanding and to become a testimony for the future generations, the diaspora, and the Syrian population at large.
