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.
