Things they Carried

Italy, 2015

“Things they carried” shows images of the objects found among the migrants died while crossing the Mediterranean.

According to UNHCR more than 3,000 refugees and migrants drowned in the Mediterranean in 2014 fleeing conflict-torn regions, and more than 3,700 died in the same way in 2015. !
Through the pictures of their belongings, which have also been almost destroyed by the sea, “Things they carried” wants to remind those who – trying to fulfill the dream of a new life far from poverty, war, hunger and persecution – lost their lives.
