What photos don't tell you about the refugee experience
How do we grasp the individual humanity of millions of displaced people? Artist, author and photographer Brian Sokol has been trying to do this from behind a lens, documenting refugee camps and engaging with people who live in them. He shares how disrupting incomplete narratives and letting refugees tell their own stories changed his own preconceptions about what it means to be displaced, conjuring up familiar images of play, love, and family.
