Web Notes
In 2013, artist Elena Dorfman was invited by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to document the plight of 16 Syrian refugees. In Syria’s Lost Generation Dorfman documents a small fraction of a population disproportionately affected by the war: teenagers. Dorfman was drawn most strongly to Syrian youth, explaining, “They seemed particularly shell-shocked and bereft…they spoke to me of powerful longing and frustration.” Dorfman’s images offer a humanistic perspective to the Syrian conflict, a global crisis that has claimed more than 470,000 lives and driven 6.5 million people from their homes.
