Children and War in Syria

The Artist

Al-Baraa Haddad and Alaa Khweled are photojournalists, aged 19 and 22 respectively. Their photographs have been published by Reuters and several other news agencies.  

The Work

This collection of photographs, Children and War, demonstrates the psychological impact on children of the ongoing war, considering the long-term implications as the violence continues. Several of the photos explore how violence is normalised by children; instead of playing with peaceful toys, we see them playing with toy AK47s.
